there was a time i thought i knew
i would always be here with you
night spent in summer watching the waves
making memories we’d save

sleeping underneath all the stars
dreaming of a world that is ours
sure as the daylight comes with the dawn
i thought our love would carry on

i never thought there’d come a day
when all our love would fade away
and so i gave my heart to you
and all my dreams came true

as time went by it became clear
that you would not always be near
and as the summer turned into fall
i did not even know you at all

so now when i think about you
and the dreams we
thought would come true
i will remember the words you said
next year summer will come again

i try to craft each song into a tiny snow-globe-sized universe you can curl up in and get lost for a little while.
