"Dove Grey Sands" as written by and Grant Nicholas....
Seein' life begin
Hear the oceans sing
It takes you back
Pulls you back
Brings you home

See your face in stone
A hollow moon above an aching sky
Silent night
Brings you home

Left without a place
Lonely inner space
That you can breathe
It's the essence of a love
My love

Lead by devotion
Celebrate
Celebrate
Celebration
Dove grey sands

Lead by devotion
Celebrate
Celebrate
Celebrate now
Dove grey sands

Narrow days alone
Pushing for the sun
Don't hide away
Burn to grey
One soul

Facing life alone
Numbers on a phone
To help you back
Send it back
Bring you home

Left without a place
Lonely inner space
That you can breathe
It's the essence of a love
My love

Lead by devotion
Celebrate
Celebrate
Celebration
Dove grey sands

Lead by devotion
Celebrate
Celebrate
Celebrate now
Dove grey sands

Feelin' like it's over
It's just the start
I can't hear you again
Dreaming of the ocean
As waves come in
I can't hear it again

Dove grey sands
Dove grey sands
Dove grey sands

    General CommentTo be terribly unprofound, this song is so pretty. It's really convinced me that I have to buy Pushing the Senses

    General CommentAgain, Grant uses some awesome imagery and metaphors in his lyrics. Previous to the release of Pushing The Senses I read that Grant had been on holiday somewhere hot during his lyric writing, and that we should expect some beach related lyrics or something, which I guess would explain the whole 'Dove Grey Sands' thing. Absolutely awesome.

    General CommentI think there is some reference to Jons death and about learning to start again and see the beauty in life after such sadness.

    General CommentYou often can relate it to jons death..

    one believes its about love, but it actually is about friendship

    General Commentfor me this is about a place wich is beautiful, maybe even perfect. not because there are things we like, but because there is nothing we dont like. this place is perfect because we dont know much about it.
    however, the one who walks there (grant?) is happy
    sounds a bit strange i guess...

    when i hear this song, i think about someone playing sitting in the sunlight playing guitar. somewhere on the grass in the woods.

    General CommentAfter 5 years of despising Pushing The Senses, I'm finally coming round to the album, especially this song. It's truly beautiful and showcases Grant's songwriting perfectly.

    General CommentPersonally, i feel it's about him missing his home. He's from Newport, which is right on the south coast of wales.

    To me, it's about all the shit that's gone down in the 3 or so years prior to PTS and how coming back to his hometown to reflect can help.
