A hopeful kind of
Helpless
Surprise

We were sitting on the back steps
Shucking August corn
With our shoulders touching there
The summer was

But you won't see a shooting star
If you're always looking down

Seedless watermelon
Endless purple skies
The Milky Way seems brighter now
It's shining through
Your eyes
Surprise

You can wait for miracles
That may never come around
But you won't see a shooting star
If you're always looking down

I've been drifting like a dandelion
Seed upon the wind
Now I'm falling to the ground
The place where
Love begins
Surprise

In my mind I am pacing
Anticipating
You
