Let the waves
Wash over the sand for a while
The lights on the horizon
Of ships moving in
And the stars in the sky
Soothe the aching soul
Maybe
If we stare out long enough
Those moments will be forgotten
Moments that resurface
And make the heart grow weary
Taking away the joy
Of everything new
Moments that cling
To every fibre of the being
And drag us back to sadness

Let the waves
Wash over the sand for a while
The tender breeze
And drizzle from the sky
Soothe the aching soul
Maybe
If we sit here long enough
Broken dreams could be pieced together
And all the times
That Love was taken away
Won’t cling
To every fibre of the being
And drag us back to sadness

So…
Let the waves
Wash over the sand for a while
Till this moment disappears.
