For the Trees

I can’t see the forest for the trees
I can’t see the ocean for the sea
My eyes go blind by all this beauty
Everywhere I look is stolen away from me

I drive this coastal road for three hours at most
I’m not getting anywhere so I guess I can’t boast
Back in the car, go down the coast
There’s nowhere left to go

Lost, but my mind keeps turning
Dark, but the coals keep burning
Slow, but the money keeps earning
Still, but my heart keeps yearning

I can’t see the forest for the trees
I can’t see the ocean for the sea
