Blue Sights



I see you and I know it's true
It's okay cause it's always blue
Sticking sights and distorted lights
It's always been there just for you
This moment I saved in time
It's been done when I'm tired
Screeching tires and motor skills
I can't see the sun past this hill

And I know this is how
When I don't know when it's now
Giving me strength to watch it through
As I come by you
Things are said in the heat of night
Didn't mean to start the fight
Why is this so hard for me
I can't seem to ever see

Things are said to put aside
And I know when it's time
Watch me now as I go
This is all for the show
Bring it down to its knees
I'm begging, I'm begging please
Let it spin to this world
Why don't you watch it as it goes

So here we are again for him
The one thing in my life again
I know he's there for me
While I sit under this maple tree
There is something we can agree
We can forget the past you'll see
I hope there is more for now
As I exit I forget to bow
