about

{I’ll never understand how you said all those things to me, and then vanished. I’ll never understand that out of so many girls, you’re the one I can’t get over.} Love is a butterfly. - David

lyrics

Hey love, I don’t understand
Everything happened so fast, and now you’re gone
I woke up alone and you were gone

Last night you were talkin’ kinda strange
You asked me where I’d go if we could both run away and I didn’t know
But you said there’s only one place that you’d go

You said the sun sets in Portland
So that’s where I’m goin’
I guess that I’m hopin’ our story didn’t end
And I’ll write you a letter
Just as soon as I get there
And it’ll say “Hey lover, I’m waiting for you here”

“Hey love,” you whispered in your sleep
I laid there thinkin’ you were talkin’ to me, oh where’d you go?
I started to like not bein’ alone, where’d you go?

I know that you don’t owe me a thing
I guess I had hoped you wanted to need me, but you don’t
And I wish I could let you go, but I won’t

I heard the sun sets in Portland
So that’s where I’m goin’
I guess that I’m hopin’ our story didn’t end
And I’ll write you a letter
Just as soon as I get there
And it’ll say “Hey lover, I’m waiting for you here”

Gotta leave before night falls
‘Cause if it falls, it’s fallin’ on me
