I’m breathing in the light of me,
and she was taken from my arms too soon..
I’m holding onto every breath,
I’m trying to make this feeling last.
If I could choose a point in time
and put my whole life in rewind —
when I was yours and you had just arrived…
when I was yours and you had just arrived.

We, growing independently,
like when the beaches meet the sea,
I can feel the currents bringing me
there’s sand beneath your naked feet.
The car’s parked on the busy street;
soft tar in the summer heat,
and cool wind fills the mountain breeze;
when night comes I will bury this seed.

So just be what I want to be
and get these walls away from me
I will love the one who cheated me
I will think about her constantly
I will wait until she comes to me
I will give myself up willingly
I am finding things that I had never lost

You’re resting in your moonlit skin
I can see it breathing out in you
I can see it breathing out in me and in you
I am breathing in my final breath
she has taken all my innocence
she has taken all my innocence away.

And this mark on me is permanent,
like all the things that come like that
and with these words I’ll speak for those who can’t.

And this mark on me is permanent,
like all the things that come like that
and with these words I’ll speak for those who can’t.

And this mark on me is permanent,
like all the things that come like that
and with these words I’ll speak for those who can’t.

    General CommentFirst Boy Bathing song I heard. I laughed because David Hurwitz sounds like Tiny Tim in The Muppet Christmas Carol.

    The title of the song is actually The Beaches Meet The Sea.
