Sat on the rooftop, watching the boats flying free
Watching the clouds walk, watching the rain become the sea, hearing our
Love talk, in every breath she ever breaths, like it was always supposed to
Be like that

But then we broke up (oh no) and she went west and I went east she got a
New boyfriend (oh no)a little too soon if you're asking me, but I've heard
That she loves him a little bit more than she'll ever love me
And it was always supposed to be like that

I look to the sky lights and said oh how many falls until I fly, look to
The old times how many rolls until I fly, I know it's tough now cause love
Always, love always is unkind

I Sat on the rooftop, and I watched the boats flying free
I watched the clouds walk, and I watched the rain become the sea, and just
For a moment just for a moment I felt so free from all I' supposed to be

I look to the sky lights and said how many falls until I fly, look to the
Old times and said how many rolls until I die, I know it's tough now cause
Love always love always is unkind
