your'e sleeping now
as i'm awake
across the sea
so far away

i can't forget
your pretty smile
your tiny hands
who reach for mine

life takes patience
patience takes time
i can't get you off my mind
adeline

the note you wrote
i read it still
i swore i would
i always will

so i'll kiss the wind
that skims the sea
in hopes it brings
you back to me

life takes patience
patience takes time
i can't get you off my mind
adeline

the space between us now
will all work for the
good somehow

life takes patience
patience takes time
i can't get you off my mind
adeline
can't get you off my mind
can't get you off my mind
adeline

patience takes time
adeline

    General Commentfrom a music blog:
    Who is your song, “Adeline” about?
    This is really bizarre but I wrote it about the orphans in Africa. Which is, I’m sure, incredibly unsuspecting. It was kids we met at an orphanage, but I didn’t want it to be that obvious.
