Lyrics

As I kneel upon the sand I hold these grains in the palm of my hand. And I pretend that each one I'm holding Is a piece of me. Some just fall down to my knees So I give the rest of them to the breeze. This way I thank the wind that has left me Sitting here beside your sea. A dream just sails on the blue of your eyes. But love is the wind upon which a ship like this relies. And when the tide leaves me washed up on the shore, I long to merely float upon your oceans once more. Suddenly I feel so brave. Your kiss takes me like a crashing wave. I want to trust that you won't throw me Head first in the sand. I swear you won't find yourself chagrinned If you just throw your grains into the wind. Come sail with me, God knowing When and where we'll land. A dream just sails on the blue of your eyes. But love is the wind upon which a ship like this relies. And when the tide leaves me washed up on the shore, I long to merely float upon your oceans once more.
