    This song began as an exercise in iambic pentameter sometime in the old millennium -- it was a sonnet first. But then I couldn't resist throwing some chords at it to make it a full-blown song.

     

about

Recorded at Alta Vista Recording in one take. Just goes to show some songs are more familiar than others (for the performer, that is!).

lyrics

You’re the ocean
You’re the sea
At your edge, I catch my breath
Come crash down over me

And constant as the tide
That pulses toward the shore
Touch me with a misty kiss
How can I want you more?

I can’t help the way that I feel
Oh, you’ve got me just like gravity
Nothing else is real

You’re the woman
I’m the man
Our love is a powerful flood
That wrecks us on the sand

Inconstant as the tide
A whisper from a roar
Tracks we’ve traced the waves erased
But still I want you more

I can’t help the way that I feel
Oh, you’ve got me just like gravity
Nothing else is real
I can’t help the way that I feel
Oh, you’ve got me just like gravity
Nothing else is real
