Hair got caught in the sunlight, darling
But I just wasted the day
I knew it would happen this way
Can't get up in the morning lately
And I'm just stuck in a dream
I'm always in the ship in the stream
I'm not wasting away and you don't want me anymore
You're free to do what you want, I know
But I can't be on the clock
I won't be waiting on the dock

    General CommentThis one is pretty self-explanatory. The girl feels that she isn't living up to her full potential, in life and in love, and she has decided she isn't going to wait around for the guy to commit to her. It's a great song. I can't believe no one has commented on it.

    Minor correction: it's "I'm always the ship in the stream."

    General Commentsweet song :)
    it feels like a lazy sunny spring day, when you just can't be bothered to face the problems and just feel like letting go .
