San Francisco Bay

from This Time Around by Michelle Lewis



Well you crept up on me like grey clouds on a blue sky
And you showered me with love and then you said goodbye
And though you’ve been out of my sight for quite sometime
Takes more than time and space to get you out of my mind

So excuse me if I stumble when we meet
It’s just that when you’re close to me my knees go weak
And if I could have one wish though bittersweet
I’d ask for just one day
in San Francisco Bay

But I know not what to do with all the love that you bring
I’m just a modern Juliet with no lark to sing
‘Cause morning can’t come for you when you already have gone
And I can’t keep playing a part that for me is all wrong

So forgive me if I fumble on the words that I must speak
Just let me bite my tongue before I’m in too deep
And I can’t promise years or months or weeks
But I’d settle for one day
in San Francisco Bay

And I’m torn between two different seas
Asking who I love more
you or me

But it’s not a question of the love I have for you
It’s a matter of regretting things I did not do
And I know I can’t make sense of all that still remains unclear
But something’s calling me that no one else can hear

So excuse me if I stumble when we meet
Just give me one last step before I fall at your feet
‘Cause there ain’t no mountain low or valley steep
that we can’t climb today
in San Francisco Bay
I’ll always find my way
back to San Francisco Bay
