lyrics

CAPE MAY

I can hardly share, even care about the blame.
I feel ashamed for falling deep, for falling hard.
Before these summer stars filled the night near and far,
we would roam hand in hand, day by day.
But, the sun feels so stark in the shadows of my heart
as my eyes catch the darkness as you vanish from view.

What is left to do?
I always think of you
on the beaches of Cape May
and the necklace I bought that day.

The moment I come home
with the fragrance of alone...
if I only had more time...

there is never enough time.

Love can't be blind 'cause your beauty is too real.
Your feelings are sincere and so are mine.
But, what becomes of love when the end comes too soon
and my feelings are aware of the truth
that you and I belong with the twilight of the moon?
Aristophanes idea of love swoons in our cocoon.

What is left to do?
I always think of you
on the beaches of Cape May
and the necklace I bought that day.

The moment I come home
with the fragrance of alone...
if I only had more time...

there is never enough time.

But now my half is gone as I ponder the reasons why
how to fly, how to be, how to move on.

I carve my tale with ribbons on the sand
as the tide creeps in and takes away my hand.
I need to be your one and only man.

Now it sinks in near my bed's window pane
an empty glass...
I'm afraid to ask who you're with
late at night...

For now I have to leave
all my mind,
all my heart,
all my love

on the beaches
of
Cape May.
