I swim the shore
I brought you some coral
I've been here before
And I'll be here tomorrow

There was a man-o-war
There was a sword fish
I sure wish the shore
Was within my reach

When I'm lying on your sand
And you're my (you're my you're my) beach

I built you a castle
But the tide took it away
And now you think I'm an asshole
So I try to make it okay

I give you the ocean
But it would only bring you down
I'll give more than my footprints
S stands for more than the sound
Of the sea we watch coming in
Below the gulls that are hovering

And I won't rub it in
To all the creatures that are struggling
To keep afloat

I love the sand on my toes
Each grain of it
You're my beach
And I won't (I won't I won't) forget

You're my (you're my you're my) beach

    General CommentSuch a nice song. No comments? It's a very peaceful one. And any song that pulls off rhyming "castle" and "asshole" is pretty sweet. I don't understand what he means by "S stands for more than the sound," but it's okay because the rest of the images are all so lovely.

    General CommentI adore this song. Also curious about "S stands for more than the sound". Anyone have any ideas?
