(capo on fret 8... or wherever)

I saw you many years ago
above the stinging sand
While your piercing blue was
staring at the beach
And the rising and the crash
Kept my attention oh so rapt
Then your lulling sounds would send me back to sleep
Oh, your lulling sounds would send me back to sleep

I saw in you a majesty, a wisdom cold and free
An adventure that I'd like to come and play
But though I struggled oh so hard
To come and meet you out that far
You were oh so good at waving me away
You knew that I was safer far away

So many times I came to you
To feel your salty tongue
But one day I knew a different kiss so sweet
You were old and I was young
And our year were so much fun
But I needed one a little more like me
You knew she was a little more like me

Amidst my happy life I still remember you so dear
Under the sun I'd felt the splashing and the spray
With your wisdom cold and free
You were always there for me
And I know that I will see you 'gain some day
You know that I'll be back again someday
