Fly this song for you Lucy
The most beautiful love story that I had and will have
It's a love letter that the wind blows away
Painted in my voice
Nowhere, to no mailbox

There is nothing more beautiful
Than what I've never had
I loved nothing more than what I lost
Forgive me if today I look in the sand
A full moon scratching the sea

If I was ever a bird of passage
I forgot to nest there is in your arms
If I was ever beautiful and I was good
It was tangled around your neck and your breasts
If I was ever wise in love
I learned it from your singing lips

If I ever loved, if one day
After loving, I loved
It was for your love, Lucia, Lucia
Your memories are sweeter every day
Oblivion only took half
And your shadow still lies in my bed
With the darkness between my pillow and my loneliness
