I asked you to send me a story so I could write you a song. Judy Lee did. This is my interpretation of the story of her son who found love overseas and dove through hoops to make it work.
It’s his time, and there’s a her / he’s been gone for months I’m sure / that his laugh is ringing louder than it was before / and we will let him go / spare the time alone / ‘cause her love, he deserves / it will mend the sores / of an old love broken down by old age / he’s watching you / he wants you to give her all of your love / boy the pain will fade / I’m watching you / I want you to be happy / be happy / innocence, lessons learned / I’m ready, the tide has turned / could she really be the one I’ve been waiting for? / the kick drum in my chest / a mirror, my hair’s a mess / if you leave promise you will come back to me / and if our paths don’t cross each other’s alone / I’ll find a way to go where you go / and when the ocean closes between us we’ll set / sail together in this life forever / and I will take good care of her rest assured / I’ll love her and you will see her again / you’ll see her again / it’s simple, we’re almost there / a small room, just two chairs / take my hand, hold it tight / when we sleep tonight / the water that kept our love alive / will flow until our worlds collide / and the space that kept our hearts miles apart / will make room for our life to start / our life will start right here with you
