Lyrics:

How Chelsea sparkled
As the summer lit her hair
We lived our dream, just a boy and just a girl
She'd once loved someone
But all that lingered was despair
And so we reigned as broken rulers of the world
 
I saw her eyes once
When she agreed for a single day
Not to hide behind a wall of her design 
They shone like diamonds 
And they gave her heart away
A soul so beautiful
But so far away from mine
 
Oh, she's the kind of girl
Who could be anybody's future
If only she could find what she deserved
Chelsea, will you think of me
When winter comes and forgets who we were?
'Cause she'll always be in my heart
And I'll always love her
 
She said, I'm sorry
That I can't be what you wanted
But I can't compromise with who I have to be 
And I glimpsed her spirit
And all the ghosts that ever haunted
With so much beauty there amongst all the debris
 
I tried to tell her
That she was more than she believed
'Cause words were the only way I knew to make things right
But they had no meaning
Because by words she'd been deceived
And I realised I'd fought a losing fight
 
Oh, she's the kind of girl
Who could be anybody's future
If only she could find what she deserved
Chelsea, will you think of me
When winter comes and forgets who we were?
'Cause she'll always be in my heart
And I'll always love her
 
We were only passers-by
An accidental storyline
With traces of the Master's grand design
But now she means the world to me
And Chelsea's silver memory
Will be with me forever in my mind
 
Oh, she's the kind of girl
Who could be anybody's future
If only she could find what she deserved
Chelsea, will you think of me
When winter comes and forgets who we were?
'Cause she'll always be in my heart
And I'll always love her

About this song:

I wrote this song for a close friend of mine's birthday. No, her name isn't Chelsea; Chelsea is a district in New York City, where we stayed for a few days in July 2012 to explore it. Try and interpret the lyrics in that light. I really enjoyed the different sound of this song, and exploring the different styles of music I can make. Right now it's not finished, though; until I'm back in Perth, I can't record the instruments that I'd like to to finish it off. I had wanted to have a song for Jess' birthday since February, however, and so I'm uploading it today, on her 20th birthday. Happy birthday, Jess. I hope you like it.
