How many drops of water will fill an ocean?
Who could ever count them all?
How long will one need to fill it?
The years would be countless too.
How many hours of care will fill a lonely heart?
How long would one need to care?
I cannot answer, except that I must fill it
Because it belongs to someone I love.
And this is what lovers must do.
So, I sit beside her every day till night falls;
And I lie beside her every night.
I ne’er wonder how long, till I am through;
I simply keep myself in her sight.
SentIf I decide to run awaySent1 day ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
And find a place that’s far away
Would you… stay?
‘Cause I need someone to send words home
And write to me to say “come home”
So I’ll know where’s home
Just leave me books to read
Send your love to me
In words I can’t write
And places I can’t go
I wanna open my eyes
To the world outside
And you ask me why
I said “it’s the world I want to see”
So send me your love!
And a little bit of luck to get by
Send me cards, maybe a little cash
Send me pictures of your cats
Send me memories, new places to see
And your adventures too.
I’ll send you my homesick heart!
I’ll send you a card or two
I’ll send you my love and promise…
That I’ll some home… to you!
Just send me your love!
And a little bit of luck to get by.
Little California GirlWide eyes, her smile was so brightLittle California Girl1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
It's such a shame I had to take that flight
She seemed so quiet, sitting all alone
Maybe now I’ll pick up the damn phone.
I wonder if she can see the beauty that I see
That sparkle in her eyes staring back at me
The skip in her step, the chills in my spine
If only, oh, if only I could make her mine.
While I pray for another kiss in the fading light
She’ll be waiting for me on the return flight
Such a shame I had to go, yet she understood.
I didn't call, even though I knew I should…
I can see her sitting alone under the sun
Waiting, just waiting, for any excuse to run
Her eyes stay glued to the cotton candy sky
I hope she knows that last kiss wasn’t goodbye.
All those butterflies my heart can’t contain
The way she sings just drives me insane.
I’ll be here while she sleeps beneath the moon.
My little California girl… I shall see you soon
