Sometimes you bottle it up for so long

It all hits like an ocean storm

On a little sail boat

It’s like nothing is wrong

But at the same time,

Everything is wrong


The carnival lights

Don’t shine the same

Your favorite songs

Are dusty in your playlist

The summer nights

Are lonely like the stars

You crave a feeling

And don’t remember where it went

You’re eager to say something

And rushing to do everything

Your thoughts are like

Standing in front of a roaring train

Pushing against the wind

And too loud to hear anything else

You worry nothing will be the same

You worry it’s all gone

And there’s nothing to do


But the lightning’ bugs still twinkle

The moon still blushes at the stars

The trees are still growing

The sail boat is still floating

The train has passed

And you’re heart is still beating
