lyrics

By the sea

she smells like honeysuckle
her eyes are green and soft as the sea
and I feel my heart strings dancing
kite strings on a salt sea breeze
she squeezes her eyes tight laughing
as I paint pictures on her skin
above us small white clouds are playing chasing
as my fingers trace smooth softness without sin

and we will be together
as long as this moment lasts forever

the sun is chasing the horizon
suddenly it smells like rain
we gather up our picnic blanket laughing
and make a mad dash for the train
shivering as I watch the raindrops falling
she reels me in to the warmth of her embrace
soft patter and the train sway lulling
as we drift in honeysuckle dreams

and we will be together
as long as this moment lasts forever
