Lyrics

Just waking up with the sand in my toes
it's the shimmering abyss that nobody can know
The early light of a day to break
as the wind brushes my face and causes me to awake -
It's the the warm sand and the salty air
leads me to the realization that I'm no longer there inside of
Inside the place that saps the soul -
back to mother nature's womb - Now it's under control

Day break
a stir of the soul
gentle roaring of the ocean things begin to unfold
A beach town starts to come alive,
shadows growing ever shorter with the warmth on the rise
inside of the hustle bustle here i start to see
the beginnings of a festive occasion on the sea
Anticipate the day ahead,
I can only start to wonder where it's lead

Look now upon the morning sea
the rays beat down upon the beach

Noon time - its coming to shape,
we don't really need a reason to always celebrate
Just recline and feel the breeze
blowing through us as we're simply observing the sea
The driftwood lies upon the sand
in a similar fashion to me and my woman
Just waiting here for what's to come-
Now the gathering appears to have begun!

The sun approaches to the sea
I feel it calling out to me
Look now upon the golden sea
the night has come to set you free.... as we


* Release ourselves into this moment
as we see
the flames a'burnin oh so bright
No longer feel the pain of living
on this one
this one and only sacred night

Come now and take my hand
feel the sounds as they begin to come to us from the band
Everything begins to blur
as we lose ourselves in rum -  we refuse to return
This was the place - I saw you there
Coming to me with your endless flowing ebony hair
& the glint inside your eyes
I can't lie it started to make me think twice

Look now toward the darkened sea
The moon reflects in ivory
I feel it calling out to me
No star remains beyond our reach
so we...

Release ourselves into this moment
as we see
the flames a'burnin oh so bright
No longer feel the pain of living
on this one
this one and only sacred night
Can we exist inside this moment? 
In the dark
The dark and permeating light
Was there a chance to let it live here
on this one
this one and only sacred night...

Just waking up with the sand in my toes
It's the shimmering abyss that nobody can know
looking out on the day ahead, I can only start to wonder where it's lead...
