Raging of the storm
Stirs up all the thoughts
I whisper to the wind

The noises of the sea
Amplify the hurt
Reminds me of its sin

It’s the deepest, richest sand
That makes me long for my sweet man
It’s the empty tired shore
That makes my heart so sore

Staring at the sea
I go back in time
The nightmare has begun

Fighting for your lives
I watch you and them
Drown beneath the sun


Distant as it seems
Little as they were
The children hold you dear

The wind wraps round my voice
I tell you all I know
I am sure you’d like to hear
