"The Dolphin's Cry" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
The way you're bathed in light
Reminds me of that night
God laid me down into your rose garden of trust
And I was swept away
With nothin' left to say
Some helpless fool
Yeah I was lost in a swoon of peace
You're all I need to find
So when the time is right
Come to me sweetly, come to me
Come to me

Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin's cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It's in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us

Oh yeah, we meet again
It's like we never left
Time in between was just a dream
Did we leave this place?
This crazy fog surrounds me
You wrap your legs around me
All I can do to try and breathe
Let me breathe so that I
So we can go together!

Love will lead us, alright
Love will lead us, she will lead us
Can you hear the dolphin's cry?
See the road rise up to meet us
It's in the air we breathe tonight
Love will lead us, she will lead us

Life is like a shooting star
It don't matter who you are
If you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time
We are lost 'til we are found
This phoenix rises up from the ground
And all these wars are over

Over
Over
Singin' la da da, da da da
Over
Come to me
Singin' la da da da, da da da
Come to me

    General CommentLife is like a shooting star
    It don't matter who you are
    If you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time
    We are lost 'til we are found
    This phoenix rises up from the ground
    And all these wars are over

    To me that little section speaks volumes. To me its like saying that love happen to every one doesn't care who you are or what you have been through. Sometimes we arent ready for love when it happens, we get scared cold feet whatever and we run, some of us run a little harder then others. You can only run so far before it hits you sometimes its not to late to spark that fire back up and make mends of the pain we caused to each other and to ourselves.

    I think this hits me hardest cause its so true, you cant stop love you can fight it but it will win in the end always has. I dont know how many countless times I have heard people say I dont deserve to be loved or something along them lines and it couldn't be farther from the truth.

    But otherwise for the song as a whole I think Its about a couple who falls in love then go their seperate ways for whatever reason and meet each other later down the road only to rekindle what they had and realize that the time they were apart doesnt seem to mater now they are back together and they are able pick up right where they left off, very passionate lovers.

    An absolutely amazing song fits me and my husband beyond perfectly. We married, we got scared and ran never filed for a divorce, finally one day I get a message he was filing the papers we started talken only to realize we couldnt do it everything was still there just as intense as it had been years ago, so we remained married, he is the love of my life and my soulmate!

    General CommentIt's a bit more then just sex on a beach. Or anywhere for that matter. It's about a couples spur of the moment love where they can barely control themselves. After it's all over they leave. Later they meet again in that same spot and it's like nothing else ever mattered. You can tell by when he says" time in between was just a dream." There is no actual fog. He's refering to the loss of control he has over himself. When he says " we are lost till we are found" I think he means, we are nothing until we have someone to love. In short it's like what the Beatles said: " All you need is love."

    General Commentthe imagery in this song is absolutely amazing. the way i interpret this song is in somewhat of a spiritual aspect.

    sure it has allusions to the whole 'sex on a beach' motif but on a deeper level there is such... intensity.

    the whole time, the guy's trying to explain something. something that is indescribable. some may call it love. but every verse is just like a little attempt to even grasp at describing even a little part of it but its so strong and overwhelming he just feels helpless and can do nothing but give into it. there is a lot of references to being "helpless" and powerless. kind of similar to being in a state of mystical trance.

    this song. just wow.
