This song is inspired by the beautiful genre of Bossa Nova, the great composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, the ocean, and the person who won't let you close, but won't let you go.


And you won't call it love or anything
But I see it in your eyes when you look at me
And you're always looking at me
And you won't call it love or anything
But I feel it in your heart when you're near me
And you're always, always near me

You draw your line in the sand, then reach across to take my hand
And it's alright, whatever it is
Like waves crashing up on the shore, over and over you come back for more
And it's alright, whatever it is

And you say you can't give your heart away
Not to me and not to anyone, and it's okay
As long as I'm not just anyone
And you quit the game of love, that's what you're saying
So what have we been playing this whole time?
In dark rooms with red wine

You draw your line in the sand, this won't last forever, so for now, take my hand
It's alright, whatever it is
Like tides washing up on the bay, coming in close and then slipping away
It's alright, and it's alright, it's alright, whatever it is
