Little Box​/​Virginia Going Home

from by Sam Plotkin

lyrics

I'm a rock, I'm an island
But it's lonely out here
A little box, a little entrance
With only room for one

Holding out for springtime
For leaves to grow on my branches
The thing about trees is they all seem
To grow outwards
But they never touch
Not really

Won't you say the words
You've never heard spoke to you
Maybe you're not alone
But you've never known the difference

I remember your smile
I remember your smile
I remember your smile
I remember your smile

Won't you say the words
You've never heard spoke to you
Maybe you're not alone
But you've never known the difference

//

She ages not so well
With no one left to tell her secrets
The time, it passes slowly outside
But ever faster in her mind

Virginia, going home
Without leaving her pillow
She's flying at the speed of sound
To places she knows no one else has found

A dragon guards her rock
And the sea defends her island
But there's no one left there to protect her heart
Maybe now it's time to wake up

Virginia, going home
She's climbing off her pillow
She's climbing at the speed of light
And maybe she'll meet someone new tonight

She remembers your smile
She remembers your smile
She remembers your smile
And I remember your smile

Virginia, going home
Without leaving her pillow
She's flying at the speed of sound
To places she knows no one else has found
To places she knows she will not be found.
