recorded live with a parlor guitar and some kind of plastic tambourine played with my foot. the end.

lyrics

Oh, Messina, you are my shipwreck
What may seem like love may only be distress
If I’m labelled a cynic, I’m such a bad cynic
So what may seem like love may not be pretense

I’m always your romantic, you could still be mine
It’s not so hopeless all the time

There’s a song in the straits, can you hear its sway?
It washes and whispers with words like waves
Stop saying never and start saying yes
Let this not be an empty address
In our faces and fists, it’s not hopeless
In our faces and fists

I’m always your romantic, you could still be mine
It’s not so hopeless all the time
I’m always your romantic, you could still be mine
It’s not so hopeless all the time

Blue waves on alabaster
Devil may care, it’s our ever-after

I’m always your romantic, you could still be mine
It’s not so hopeless all the time

Oh, Messina, you are my shipwreck
What may seem like love may not be distress
