Sink and rise, swim under the crest of spinning sea, going over me

Tropic ice, remnants of the dusk of another day, won't you try to stay?

Like the first breath of winter, you're all in my lungs

every name I know, darling yours is the one

You can be the lightning, I'll be the storm

I'll meet you on the beach where our parents were born.



Duck and dance, footprints paint the sand of this little isle, as we stray and smile.

Here or there, we'll wait and watch the waves for a day or two, then it's me and you

Like the sun in the morning, I'm finally free

Every time we touch you're the master of me

You can be the movement and I'll join the fight

I'll love you and miss you like the sun in the night



Back again, here to watch children as they hatch and crawl, through the urban sprawl

Changing world, plastic in the sand and the ocean streams, polypropylene

Like the moon calls water, I'm longing for you

every changing tide is a breath she drew

you can be the seeker and I'll be the sight

I'll wait for you always with all of my might.

This feeling when we’re together

I would wait forever

Two turtles backed by leather

And you can go wherever

And I promise I’d never leave

This feeling when we’re together

I would wait forever

You can go wherever

And I promise I’d never leave
