See I have kept the greatest sadness to myself
I have kept a record of unfortunate despair
And Lydia, for whom I have the greatest affection
Is in another country far away from my attention

Well I suppose I have arrived at something more than I expected
I believe I am much better off with what I have
I would hope the same is true for Lydia though I cannot say for sure
Perhaps she’s lying wide awake and wishing she had something more

There are a few things time and distance cannot alter
There are a few things I would say now if I had the chance
There is a space I fear is occupied by Lydia
And frozen as it is in time I cannot justify it being there

So all the time I spect committing this to memory
Was time apart from living outside in the bitterness
And Lydia, who knows no greater advocate than innocence
Is far away from my protection or deliverance


from The Pacific Ocean, released May 1, 2007
