lyrics

She stands upon the sand that’s soft against her toes
The sunset bathing her in twilight
And as she hugs herself, her memory returns and chills her skin
And she says

“I wish we could stay this way forever, twirling and dancing with the ocean
Why can’t we just stay this way forever?”

The waves (like arms or blankets, tight against her skin)
Envelope her with crashing sighs
And she dances on and wades into the sea
The waves come down and drown her

I wish we could stay this way forever, twirling and dancing with the ocean
Why can’t we just stay this way forever?

As they waltz suspended
They cry into the night without a hint of sorrow
