By the Coast

lyrics

The other day I was down by the sea,
holding those flowers that he’d give to me.
I stole a glance at that one house he had,
Where the shutters quivered in the wind.
If I wrote a letter to the past,
I’d tell him I’d lasted.

But as I ran into the blue,
My tears mixed with the waves.
And the pain tasted the same,
As missing him.

I felt that salty-sweet sea breeze,
And the memories you’d had of me.
So much to do and little time for it,
Your tender love could’ve grown a forest.
But now I’m sat here at your grave,
So I won’t forget those things we made
And the songs we played
In that old rundown town by the coast
Yes that old rundown town by the coast

I remember him walking up to me,
Saying that we could never be.
It wasn’t that we weren’t in love,
All he said was I have to go.
I saw his heart sunken in his eyes,
The way he wept throughout his life.

But as he ran into that blue,
His tears mixed with the rain.
And the pain tasted the same,
As losing him.

I felt that salty-sweet sea breeze,
And the memories you’d had of me.
So much to do and little time for it,
Your tender love could’ve grown a forest.
But now I’m sat here at your grave,
So I won’t forget those things we made
And the songs we played
In that old rundown town by the coast
Yes that old rundown town by the coast

I felt that salty-sweet sea breeze,
And the memories you’d had of me.
So much to do and little time for it,
Your tender love could’ve grown a forest.
But now I’m sat here at your grave,
So I won’t forget those things we made
And the songs we played
In that old rundown town by the coast
Yes that old rundown town by the coast
