deeper shade

sunshine ringing in my ears
too bright to see the blue
and the wind turns its back on me
no one notices
watching the silent heartbeat of the world
wondering if the sky ever wants to change its hue

is the sun ever caught by the evening
does the rain ever rise back to heaven

does the sky ever change its hue

do the birds ever regret they flew for falling
do the flowers ever regret they bloomed for fading

does the sky ever change its hue

as the sun takes back the raindrops
as the sea takes back the waves
as the wind takes back my words
I fade into another kind of hue
as this day carries me along
I find a deeper shade of blue
