Sea green, seeblue by Jay May 



"Won't you miss me?" you said
Inside Grand Central Station
And your eyes grew red and wild before the chasin'
I felt your body move through my coat
I felt your footsteps, silent but heavy
You followed me onto the shuttle
Tapped my shoulder one last time, that was all

Hmm...


I miss winter just because I miss when I knew you best

I miss the typewriter in the basement
I miss making your room a mess
i miss not being misused
I miss it all, so I guess I lose
Sea green, see blue

Hmm...


September 2 to April 13th, but who's counting?

Song after song after song after song
Amounting into mountains
He told me you beat her up
Behold the "Super Keith" on the cup
What's up?
Enough's enough
Where's my morning coffee?
I regret every single thing I ever said;
I said those things too softly

Hmm...


There was you, there was me

In the room with the alcoholic guest
You asked if we should sleep on these cardboard sheets
I said: "Yes, okay, let's,"
The sculptor we hardly knew
His limbs were lying askew
Sea green, see blue

Hmm...


You tossed your phone fifity feet in the air

I can't believe you caught it
You said whatever you wanted to
As long as you thought it should be true
You dream, you make movies, you dance
Moved to Montreal to be closer to France
How's that working out?
How's the music?
How's the food?
I know you won't stay there forever
I know you're gonna move again

Hmm...


This is crazy, but I know

I left you to be with your art
You always put me first
And somehow that broke my heart
It's not my place to choose
My first love, and my only muse
Sea green, see blue

slm,

I really like this piece. I can only guess what it's about,and I guess it's about living with an artist,or a songwriter,do correct me if i'm wrong. It was fine in the beginning until he seemed to somehow change all because of his dedication to his work. Oh how would I know what you could really mean, but I think it's wonderful,the way you write,whatever it is. Always looking forward to your upcoming posts,warm wishes! :)
