One Way Ticket

29 04 2008

Well I knew this was a one way ticket
But you know I had to come
The light that was shining from inside your soul
Told me this was home
You know I have to roam the world
And leave you all alone
I know it ain’t the same as bein’ there
This talkin’ on the phone
But love wins out through sun and storm
And I love you till it’s wrong
And all I really need from you tonight
Is to know that you’ll be strong

And California’s not that hot
Though it don’t have that much rain
And all the greedy people and their money,
Well, they’ll drive you ’bout insane
And the men keep fallin’ all over you
They’ll promise you the moon
But they’ll break your heart from the very start
And say they’ll be back soon
But we’ll do our best like all the rest
Even when the times get hard
But if we keep on lovin’ each other this way
We’ll hold the winning card

Now the roses bloom outside our house
And the sun shines in our eyes
And there ain’t much more that a man could want
Than a good woman by his side
You know you’re a woman that inspires mens dreams
That makes us carry on
So keep on shinin’ that light of yours
And listen to this song
And always try to be yourself
Don’t worry what the others say
And I will always be right here
To help you in every way

So we knew this was a One Way Ticket
But you know we had to go
We found each other in a troubled world
And we’ve done the best we know
And I love you just the way you are
For me you got to do the same
We both are looking for some Peace and Freedom
In this Goddamn silly game
And I believe we’ll make it through
If we keep our feelings clear
And let the wind blow through our hearts
And chase out all the fear.

Inspired by the moment in the movie, “The Abyss”. Don’t try to change the person you love. They are who they are.
