You told me I was the ocean
deep and soothing
said I was the pearl in your oyster
your goodness in a bad day
I asked you, "So I mean a lot?"
You said to me, "You all I got"
Said I'm the summer day on a winter's night
the breeze on a spring's night
the fireflies light flashing bright
Said I'm refreshing to your weary mind
like ice cold iced tea
to a dry, scratchy throat
I asked "Who before me meant a lot?"
You said, "What they had wasn't real so I forgot"
Your the life jacket
that keeps me from sinking
in this crazy world with crazy thinking
your the long walk Jill Scott sang about
my rock providing a solid foundation
You asked me "So I mean a lot?"
I said, "Now baby YOU KNOW, you all I got!"
