the saltwater holds all her memories. like waterfalls
her thoughts cascade into melting imagery
reflections and crystals over the sea
she is so romantic with the night sky that she will never love the day. ocean’s daughter. the container of mystic waters. her pain haunts her. the howls she hears that nobody else can.
the feeling that she is just too much, but then again, nothing at all. in the river of her veins i can swim to treasure chests. i am lead into oceanic heaven, i am free of my body and my worries. i am following a sovereign of the sea

If you look at the bottom left corner of the screen, you’ll see Maya has sheet music for Girl From Ipanema. This is a jazz standard that is actually typically sung by women, no pronouns changed. (My favorite version is Amy Winehouse.)

Anyway, the first verse goes 
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walkin’
And when she passes
Each one she passes goes ‘Ahh”

This, I think is referring to multiple girls liking Lucas. Not saying everyone, but it’s basically saying that Maya isn’t the only one in the running, that she has someone in the way.

Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead not at me

This is pretty obvious. It shows that though Maya has feelings for him, he is oblivious and cannot have him.  (There’s another verse but it’s basically just a reiteration of the first verse.) 

So this wasn’t very mindblowing, but it’s just another little clue planted by the writers

[EDIT: So I got a lot of notes about why this is about rilaya rather than lucaya. The reason I spoke about lucaya was because I thought the narrative route the show is heading down gave evidence for them, and because this is traditionally a song where gender is typically not important/irrelevant. I also thought that once gender was cast aside, the lyrics made sense to be about Lucas. That said, I see so much evidence for rilaya, especially because Riley has a lot of suitors (Farkle, Lucas, Charlie) and maya wouldn’t think Riley would like her that way. Thanks for the feedback, I love widening my perspectives about my theories.) . @theowldetective

And I Love Her - Passenger

She’s a whistle on the wind
Feather on the breeze
Ripple on the stream
She is sunlight on the sea
She’s a soft summer rain
Falling gently through the trees
And I love her…

She’s cunning as a fox
Clever as a crow
Solid as a rock
She is stubborn as a stone
She’s a hardheaded woman
And the best one that I know
And I love her
Yeah well I love her

She’s as new as the springtime,
Strong as autumn blows
Warm as the summer
And soft as the snow
She’s a thousand miles from here
But she’s everywhere I go
‘Cause I love her

She loves me like a woman
She looks like a lady
She laughs like a child
And cries like a baby
I think that maybe she’s the one that’s gonna save me.
