We were like a summer suntan.
It took time to create but once it was there
Man, it was beautiful.
We had it all.
We were the romance of movies.
It was quick and easy
And full of staying up late making cookies
You were warm and soft
Like the sun shining on my face.
I loved every minute of you
Even before I could tell you I did.
It was perfect and lovely
But we were young.
We had dreams that didn’t line up
And my wanderlust drew me away
I tried to get the suntan back
But the star was too far away to brown my skin.
I thought I could feel the warmth,
It wasn’t enough.
The sun was gone, and by the time it returns
We will be gone, too.
The seasons have changed and the suntan has left
And just as the winter steals away the sun’s last kisses
So the distance stole your kisses from me.
