"Around the Bay" as written by Daniel Raphael Rossen and Fred Hurley Nicolaus....
You're all too older today
All my words, they've flown away
I'll wait around for an hour or so
With those birds out in the bay
Making their rounds like I knew they would

All my thoughts left me again
Bliss me out, send me away
I'll wait around for an hour or so
Watch those birds out in the bay
Making their rounds like I knew they would

Running all around
Running all around
Running all around

Grassy, still, late afternoon
Saw your face swimming in the blue
You lie around for an hour or two
Watch us kids play in our parks
Dropping our lies like a gospel tale

Running all around
Running all around

    General CommentIt sounds like a story about someone who needs some time to themselves and so decides to sit by the ocean watching the birds. As he does so, he relaxes and puts his thoughts in order, which leads to a transcendent experience (All my thoughts left me again/ Bliss me out, send me away). I like the hand claps during "Running all around"
