In the sun burnt fields I saw you and my world span around (and I)
Thought to myself I am falling
Then I walked through town
I found you at the end of the day we lay down by the edge of the bay
One breath of the sea
One taste of the brine
And I was yours and you were mine

Then it came to all the distance
And the days in between
We fell so deep into the space of what we say and we mean
Full of fears there's a price to pay
I close my eyes and I'm in that day
One breath of the sea
One taste of the brine
And I was yours and you were mine

Oh my love I was drowning in sight of the shore
You brought me round you revived me
And now I want more
Of the fishes and the caves tumbling down
The tides and the waves are throwing me around
One breath of the sea
One taste of the brine
And I was yours and you were mine

And I'm caught in the nets and you're in the ropes and the lines entwined
But I'm yours and you're mine

    General CommentSongnotes from the album:
    Being raised in small west country seaside towns both Phil and I are fully aware of the poignant atmosphere of end-of-summer romance. "You're mine" is hopefully enhanced by some "whale noises" on the fiddle.
