My Name Is Derek

My name is Derek
I'm laying in the grass
Atop a massive cliff face
Waiting for time to pass

Come lay next to me
Tell me how you've been
Set a towel down
Or you're gonna stain your shirt

The wind here is cold
Just like this whole town
And I'm still in shorts
Losing feeling in my legs

My journey both ways is uphill
And I would rather be chilled
Than sweating to death in real clothes
It's a reason that nobody knows

My name is Azure
Or is it Nathan?
Well, does it matter
What title we lock ourselves in?

It's getting easier
When I choose not to think
When I drift away
Stormy seas are calm

When I'm face to face
With the one I love
I forget myself
And I cling on to her

Clinging to an image of hope
It's easier than being alone
Even if it hurts when I think
I can just dull it with a drink

I think I'll be heading home

My name is Derek.
