[Si’s] Prayer

Hey,

This is what I’ve been meaning to tell you, 

And when I’m left without your love It could feel like a lifetime, baby,

[remember?]

And somewhere [in those days] start we had it all right

Sunshine and blue skies, yes I recall But now there’s a darker blue I’m bleeding and you don’t care

don’t care

don’t care don’t care

don’t care don’t care don’t care

don’t care don’t care don’t care don’t care

The sun sinks and you’re not there My brother [mother] always said, I’m a dreamer, dreamer

You [I] better [got to] watch out where this life will lead ya [me]

[s]he always said she’s I’m a keeper, keeper

She [I]’ll stay by your side when the rest will leave ya

Well I’m [you’re] looking on my [your] left side…

I’m looking on my [your] right She’s [I’m] nowhere to be seen now, when I close my eyes at night

Dreaming, surely, you can find me by the shore I’m singing so blindly Can you hear me, can you find me?

If ever you’re listening

If ever you’re reading
