This Book Business and the Bad Times…

Love Will lyrics: My Sol

This one’s kind of self-explanatory, so I’ll let the song speak for itself.  **SPOILER ALERT** My Sol Another month passes I see you in my mind’s eye My thoughts a million miles away A galaxy between us Or so it seems You couldn’t be farther from me. I stare out at the ocean Looking in […]
