At the end of the sea
There waits my wind
To carry me

Through storms we will sail ahead
Just to gaze at the top of the world

From the bottom of the world
We looked up and saw the moon
And gazing at it then we fell
In love, in love

So we made up our minds
To arrive smiling
Yet we made up our minds
To touch the height of life
And find out what we felt for it
How we felt for it
How we felt for it

From the top of the world
We looked up and saw the sun
And gazing at it then we fell
In love, in love

    General Commentshara worden's slightly whimsical explanation for this song:
    "i took the idea for this song from a book by george macdonald called [i]at the back of the north wind[/i]. in this story (i do my own version of it, you know how it is) but in this story there's a little boy named diamond who was named after his father's big black carriage horse named big diamond, and little diamond sleeps in the hayloft just above big diamond's stall in the barn. one night, the north wind comes to little diamond's window, and she blows open his shutters and says, 'hey, would you like to come along with me and go on a ride while your parents are sleeping?' and he's like 'yeah! sure! that'd be really fun! i'd like to go!' so he climbs into the back of her long flowing hair and they fly all around the world doing the job of north wind. which, for those of you who don't know what that is, the north wind lightly brushes the leaves on the bushes, and sometimes! when she's in a great big fury, she blows open the stained glass windows of the churches, and other times she gives sailors on the ocean a very rough ride."
