You Were There

You were there
With yellow flowers in your hair
And the summer air seemed to get us high
The county fair
Was lit up like a caution flare
And it was there
I believe i caught your eye
Like a pop fly,
in the tall grass at the end of July
Like a firefly
Lights the darkest night

You were there
In the darkest depths of my despair
With a certain flare
Of which i’ve come to rely
Like a sunrise
​Still to my surprise sets every night
Like a sacrifice
Required to survive
And the broad daylight
Dies in vain most every night
The front porch light
Lights the darkest nights in my life were the ones that i couldn’t spend with you
The darkest world is the one where dreams can never come true

It was summers eve
the brightest stars i have ever seen
Could you believe
Another one’s gone by
In harbor bay, on cool night late in May
To my dismay
We’ve crossed the great divide
And i lost my mind
That I’ve never been willing or able to find
Like a flash of light
Into a world that’s gone blind
And the red tail lights
Burn like fire thru the innocent pines
I keep it locked up tight
All Inside of my mind

Like drinking a beer in front of a campfire.
