Shipwrecked

Shipwrecked

I close my eyes
Go back to another time
I can’t imagine you’ll ever know
My apology is long past due

We used to talk about the future
Now I reminisce the past
But, time is indifferent
I can’t remake what I unmade

Rain on me
As I walk along the beach
Footprints in the sand
Washed away by the sea

We wait for that magic moment
Can’t see when it arrives
Seems so long I’ve been waiting
Still don’t know what for

Its too late to express
At how selfish I had been
Now I’m shipwrecked on an island
Of my own design

Rain on me
As I walk along the beach
Footprints in the sand
Washed away by the sea

With too much time to contemplate
What could and might have been
I’d write an SOS in the sand
But, who would rescue me

Sorry's not enough
For the way I treated you
Without me the sun will continue to shine
Without you my love is blue

Rain on me
As I walk along the beach
Footprints in the sand
Washed away by the sea

I can’t imagine you’ll ever know
That I know where you are
As much as I want to reach out
Things are best left as they are
