she flew and she flew til i caught her
now i'll take good care of your daughter
i know it's patience that taught her
'cause it taught me the same

baby it's late and i'm sorry
i have to wake up so early
this song's in my head and i can't sleep
i just keep singing your name
again and again

awake i wait for your return
how red are my eyes and how they burn
i keep moving on but will i learn
to live with what i've got

i'll set these ideas in motion
find me a place near the ocean
rub coconut suntan lotion
on your soft white skin

tasting the salt with each swallow
everything else seems so hollow
you'll paddle out and i'll follow
then we'll ride back in
again and again

awake i wait for your return
how red are my eyes and how they burn
i keep moving on but will i learn
to live with what i've got
to not be what i'm not
