why have you got to hide behind those eyes

like the stars behind the blue sky

the morning sun takes them from the night

like when you took the time to say goodbye

wait till the wind picks up

and the fog burns off

and the doors open

and the dogs are calm

wait till the alarm goes off

and the cars drive on

and the morning slows

and the day gets long

wait till the tide comes in

and the sand gets hot

and the air gets salty

and the birds squawk
