I stand at the ocean
reflecting on how I've failed
and knowing that your heart is
a ship that's set sail /
On the coast of Florida,
sulking seaside, drew
my endless boyish scribbles
that were always inspired by /
You sent it back, the rubberband ring ribboned
and songs I thought you'd like but didn't /
And the torn paper scrap that's always detailed you
the truth is there bolded in blue /

Errol By the Sea
condo on the fifth floor
I imagine you with me
all smiles and love and more /
You are the lightning
sharp and warm
8 months later I will find myself
sobbing with the /
Storm inbound and I confess that last year was such a mess
it's a stupid situation but it's hard to assess /
The Atlantic is awoken anew, ruthless rain in a stabbing slew
heavy clouds are overhead bolded in blue /

[chorus interlude]

There's a ring in your ear
sent back my voice to you
I feel a sting of fear
was it really me? / (whatever could it be?)
Corroded by the ocean salt
you just walk on down the beach
and I feel my heart halt
now the gloss runs across / (that has brought me to this loss?
This loss, my loss of you)

[chorus interlude]

I can't tell if I'm in the right direction
can you recall all of my affections? /
I feel that I could have you, I mean you really never know
But everyone is telling me I've gotta let it go / (I've gotta let you go)
still I swear that you are worth it
what else can I do? /
it's strongest in your eyes
bolded in blue / (I'll hang up, give it a few years)

[chorus interlude with solo]

But she was only a shadow
still I shouldn't address her /
even though she'll never know
she was just another spiritual successor \
