The Stops Lyrics

I can't undo the day
It won't go under the rug
I pull out all the stops
And you pull the plug

These are sober days and I know it can't be
But I'll miss you the way you miss the sea

Don't look down
Keep staring like you've never seen the stars
If you need me to remind you who you are
Little blossom there's the shiniest soul
Just behind those eyes

'No longer my affair'
Well I can't go there just yet
So I've come to love and trust those friends
That are holding your net

Falling off used to mean
Maybe grazing a knee
And I'll miss you the way you miss the sea

Don't look down
Keep staring like you've never seen the stars
If you need me to remind you who you are
Little blossom there's the shiniest soul
Just behind these eyes

While I won't second guess
What you're thinking of me
I will miss you the way you miss the sea

1 Thoughts & Meanings

Is it a father sending off a kid (to college)? Or maybe just trying to deal with the fact that hours child has grown up? "I'll miss you the way you miss the sea" throws me though. Is the kid joining the navy? ;-)
