Seaview Hotel

Conversations and paperback page turns
Friendly faces and photographs pinned to the walls
Candle lights and long views from windows across the houses below
The sound of laughter and welcoming voices
Fireplaces and night skies with forgotten stars
Sometimes the horizon, somehow, just relaxes your eyes
I’ll close my eyes to the sun while you keep your thoughts to yourself
And no-one’s trying too hard to keep up or to keep things afloat
 
Distant towns leave a scar that won’t fade
And those conversations will travel at speeds you can’t match
Sometimes the horizon, somehow, just reminds you of that
I’ll close my eyes to the facts while you keep hide resentment inside
And no-one’s trying too hard to notice that we’re falling apart
