Everything, is gonna be alright.

I can still remember exactly what you taste like.

I cry myself to sleep at night.

With thoughts of you, darling.

Eyes so blue, amazing hue, with flecks of gold.

You are the one I want to watch me grow old.

& I want to watch you grow old too.

Because I truely, sincerely love you.

I didn't think I was capable of loving someone this much.

Half of my heart is in Cairo, & it won't keep in touch.

I cried the salty ocean that keeps us apart.

& on the other end of that ocean lies you, the theif that stole my heart.

I've tried others.

& their sisters and brothers.

& their mothers too.

But none of them compare to you.

I hold in my hands two pieces of a broken heart.

With no glue.

& I let you go with the wind.

I'll let you go.

I'll hug my knees, look up to the sky.

& wish you a goodbye.

I'll look up to the sun.

I'll squint my eyes at the light.

& I'll think "Everything, is gonna be alright."
