...and it caught me off guard.
The way things that I was so sure of simply crumbled away.
I woke up with winter inside of bones.
I'd never been so sure of anything.

You were the ocean, I was the sand beneath your waves.

And all the things that pushed us together
Are all the things that pulled us apart.
But I figure this is best
Considering my intentions
Just to chase, chase, chase until I'm satisfied
Then throw you away.

You were the ocean. I was the sand beneath your waves.

Everything I ever was ultimately added up to so much less than I had ever hoped for.
I am the furthest thing away from what you see in me.
But there have been times when there was no difference between you and I.

I wondered what sort of lesson was built in to all of this.
What should I take away?
Learning from this sort of thing isn't easy when
Your solutions are mistakes.

You were the ocean. I was the sand beneath your waves.

Everything I ever was ultimately added up to so much less than I had ever hoped for.
I am the furthest thing away from what you see in me.
But there have been times when there was no difference between you and I.

And you said all I ever do is run away...

I am the ocean. You are the sand beneath my waves.

Everything I ever was ultimately added up to so much less than I had ever hoped for.
I am the furthest thing away from what you see in me.
But there have been times when there was no difference between you and I.

I am the ocean. You are the sand beneath my waves
