lyrics

She packed up all of her sweaters and headed for the desert.
She never made much sense that way.
Gave back all of the letters, even the four that I lent her
for three years, give or take a day.
But there’s no need to shout ‘cause she’s got it all figured out.

I hear the sound of the EL trains. Oh, how they move like the city’s veins
and I’m at the heart of this all.
Even the buildings look different and I can feel insignificant
when I’m standing next to something so tall.
I know beyond a doubt that I still haven’t figured it out.

Hey sandcastle, build yourself under the sun
and run away from the snow and the colder weather.
‘Cause here the skyline casts a shadow on the beach
but I say even the sun can’t shine forever.

Now I’ve found the words to sing out loud
but I’m still trying to figure it out.
