A song from a story I hope to write. Still working out the details, but so far it's from the perspective of a now-18-year-old boy. He lives in a town along a coast, and his childhood friend (the
main character) is the granddaughter of a famous sea captain. She lives in a large house right along the water, where the two have many adventures. The boy is taken away by a currently undecided
force, and the girl is called out onto the sea to find him. However, she finds that only her heart can show her the way to where he lies, and is fighting to return home. Enjoy!

I met you on a summer's day,

Blue eyes in a sea of grey.

Brown hair blowing in the wind,

Never knowing how your soul drew me in.

 

We became the best of friends

On the beach by the old road's bend.

Hand in hand among the blue waves,

Not thinking about our future days. (chorus)

 

As we grew, love arrived

And I saw you with different eyes.

I began to realize as our bond changed

That we would never be the same.

(chorus)

 

Long gone are those summer days.

Blue skies are turning grey.

Look into your heart and you will find

That I am not so far away.

 

Chorus:

Oh, how bittersweet was this time with you

We've been side-by-side for all that we've been through.

And though the wind has carried me away,

Just know that my heart will never stray.
