about

the ocean and space are the exact same thing. this was for a songwriting class

lyrics

yr face about as smooth as sand
at the nicer beach way down the coast
on the highway traffic stands
at hot attention

you touch me soft and in a way
that makes me think you've had a kid
as a joke, next father's day
ill get you something

the scent of lavender soap
much unlike when we were teens
when they used to tell you jokes
about your hygiene

and the still heat of the car
trapped a mile from an exit
the hum of many motors
all this reminds me:

of stuffy empty bars
coughing on a borrowed smoke
a steady hand's caress
on my back as i regain my breath

the stench, you couldnt stand
sorry i didnt quit
i hope that youll forgive me
s'all i ever need

the stop-and-go of 64
a clear view of the ocean
the window down does nothing more
than give a salty breeze

a seagull flying overhead
could rush hour be romantic?
worth the wait when we're in bed
all air-conditioned

and stuck atop the bridge
we trade the lies we've told
the others since we were kids
19 is still a kid

the stillness of it all
a silence that can comfort us
but tell me do you recall?
the scenes when we were young

of stuffy empty bars
coughing on a borrowed smoke
your steady hand's caress
on my back as i regain my breath

the stench, you couldnt stand
sorry i'll never quit
i hope you can forgive me
s'all i ever need
