Written during St. John Songfest 2006.


I landed here after the fall a few years back
Seems like the sun's still in my eyes
Why have I stayed here all this time, why?

Jean and I sort of fell together
She blew in on an east wind storm
Found me sitting here drinking pain killers
In a beach side bar in St. John

I guess it's time I should think about leaving
Folks back home might be missing me
I've gotta find a way to keep believing
The last one left with Jean


Boats come and go every hour on the hour
Across that bay so blue and green
I'm still here nursing pain killers
The last boat left with Jean

I swore I'd never let Jean see me crawl
My back's been burned by the sunshine
And I've been stopped by this morning squall
I've really gotta leave this time
