Farewell to the King

Watch the sun say goodnight
And the stars first shine their light

Gazing into my eyes

Filled with wonder and surprise

This is where you need to be

On the sand

Squeezing my hand

Over my head

Inhaling every word I said

About this affinity I have for you

As your eyes glisten a deep timeless blue

And the path of time, the sea, it paves

While the stars waltz upon those wanton waves

Diffusing the glare

Of lost wishes and care

I know I’ll never be subpoenaed to speak the truth

Of my heart and head and your lips of vermouth

Subdued, I surrender with a sigh

Alone I dream on under a champagne veil of the evening sky
