Rising coast

Written in a short moment of my life that I felt a certain emotion of love and forgiveness


The empty side streets where im gone
Following the line of tree tops
The city landscapes its cost
But I know im far aaway
So I wash it all away

The water holds the current truth
The falling seeds spring the youth
There is nothing left for me to do
I am playing my cards
Under the stars ill lay them down

The jack of spades the queen of hearts
The diamonds fading in the dark
The king is praying for a spark
The ageless song plays again
While the broken parts try to mend
Out on the rising coast
The sea tide sinks its toes
Fill It up while youre alone
Be my friend yeah be my friend again
