21 days

I haven’t seen your face in 21 days.
Did you come to terms?
Did you sort it out?

I traced your footsteps every 21 days.
Down by the beach
You must have been here.

You’d need a time to think.
That’s what you said.
So how do you feel now.

After 21 days, 21 sunny days.
21 days 21 sunny days.
Did you come to terms?
Did you sort it out?
In 21 days 21 sunny days.

I haven’t slept one night in 21 days
I just lay awake
And was counting sheep

I was doing fine every 21 days
That’s what I said
Little white lies

Haven’t wrote one line
Not a single chord
On my red guitar

And now as you ring at the door
After 21 hot summer days
All the willow trees are still swaying in a breeze

Now guess what, I won’t let you in
No I guess I won’t let you you in.

Because I’ve come to terms
And I’ve made up my mind
I’lll keep on staying on my own.

...after 21 days
