Tides move, and so do hearts...

[center][i]I knew the moment
Arriving on her heart' shore
Tides move so quickly[/i][/center]



The tides of your thoughts

Sometimes in and lifting

Sometimes out and withdrawn


She said

Stay outside and look around

You can't come in or settle down

Admire the view, but never touch

My heart has room

But you're too much


So for a while I stayed and watched

I saw her tears from something botched


I said

You could come stay within mine

My heart is open, all of the time


So she had herself a little look

I don't think she liked the view

Her intentions I mistook

But now I finally knew


I slowly walked away

She kept wanting me to stay

I said what for?

My heart was open

Yet you closed the door


I won't be kept at arm's length

Staying that far back takes all of my strength

Loving you again would bring me sorrows

A room chalk full of empty tomorrows


So like a balloon let go in the wind

Helium can take me to where I can begin

Again
