Waves drift ashore
and wash away the white dress that you wore
In days when you were young inside
And wiped away the tears of darkness from my eyes
and cleansed away the fears behind my empty eyes
Where have you gone?

Birds dip and glide
Silently they scan the barren skies
And waters dark and deep
You didn't see me, nor did you realize
Oh why was it you never realized
How far you'd gone?

And how the waves embraced you
You lay down between them, disappearing from my eyes
Swallowed up so quickly, that I knew that I just had to run away

Will I ever see you?
Forever is a longer time than we can know
Sleeping softly in the ocean's silent womb
I won't disturb you telling of my simple woes
And how a young boy dreamed the same dream long ago,
and still today

And how the waves embraced you
You lay down between them, disappearing from my eyes
Swallowed up so quickly, that I knew that I just had to run away
