audio sample recorded at Tagachang Beach

lyrics

be there
be there
I can’t wait to be where
the tide doesn’t drown me
the winds curl around me
perhaps you’ll be there
be there
I hope to be where you are when the oceans calm

say when
say when
what will you say when
we both finally
stand on the same side of the sea
be there
be there
I can’t wait to be where you are when the oceans calm

so sing me beyond the waves
though I’ll not know where to go
and pray with me I don’t feel at home in high tide’s throw
