I wish I was more like the waves on the shore then a girl crashing at your feet“I Am Your Summertime” by Julia Miralles
And I start to cry with the sand in my eyes and you burn me with your heat
I know I could shine if I knew you were mine but I know that will never be
Wish you were more then a light to look for
In a storm I can’t defeat
