I turn my collar up against the wind
  and place my eyes along the skyline

Hoping in the darkness for some sign of you
  a colder truth I’ve never known

I pull my jacket tight across my chest

Knowing the tide is like your receding heart
  washing my footsteps from the sand

The sun has now gone, the moon in flight
  and my hopes rise o’er the waves

My collar frozen and my soul on fire,
—as my wait begins again
