goodbye, sweet honeyed words

I see you standing there across the ocean,
looking back at me through the lens,
as if just standing still could stop the motion
and I was here waiting on my knees

don't you try to sell me your sweet words,
I think I might have lost my appetite
and you paint yourself so high among the lords,
can't you see you're just wanted for the night?

I feel your heart's desire riding with the wind,
announcing that it's just passing by
and the thought of chasing you did cross my mind,
but you had just said goodbye

so don't you go and feed me your honey,
my soul is still filled with the void
and you thought I was just being funny
about all the time you made me paranoid

you came back that night without warning,
certain that I'd take you in my arms,
because I loved you deeply in the morning
and the night still smelled of your charms

so don't you try and kiss me like you do,
don't you dare hold my head,
your absence fed this love that I grew
and your presence will just drive me mad
and I'd rather be dead
