I wrote this on Akumal Beach in Mexico. So wonderful I felt I could stay there forever.


Down and Out Inside

Waves crash
Sing to the shore
Mutes all the color from the life I had before
I can’t go back there

Down and out

Down and out
Down and out inside

Fingers clenched so tight
Ocean winds will guide you like a loose abandoned kite
Too lovely to be lost
Too lovely to be

Tears fall
Flowers start to grow
The biggest diamonds heartache buries in the snow
Just a reminder
Of what’s left behind there
