Santa Cruz Mountains

by Loolwa Khazzoom • January 29, 2016 • Songs

I try to hold on
To a piece of you
By saving your message
But then the grief hits me
When I hear your voice again

In the Santa Cruz mountains
You tower on your island 

I can’t figure out
If you enjoy this misery
You create in me
Or if you don’t even
Think about it at all

It feels like I’m standing
At an intersection
Where every street says “Wrong Way”
With you laughing
Behind the signs

In the Santa Cruz mountains
You tower on your island

It’s almost as if you are Gd
And somehow you know
What I’m feeling
Somehow you created
These feelings in me

And now you use them against me
Hate me for loving you
The way you hate yourself

In the Santa Cruz mountains
You tower on your island
