"Shorley Wall" as written by Daniel Graham Popplewell, Andrew Robert Flett, Stephen Alexander Flett, Allan Percival Kelly and Sophia Rosalind Churney....
No tears from a summercloud
Til off the shore the stars come rolling out
As the voices fade
Tired of bad advice she whispers,
"Ooh, watch the moon
Can't you see? This is me."

Shorley Wall
She's selling seashells up on Shorley Wall
Where the ocean swells and leaves you small
She's selling seashells up on Shorley Wall
Just watch the moonrise up on Shorley Wall
Who could ask for more?

If life is an open book
She'd rather read the pictures for a while
Let the bastards moan
'Cause where she falls, she falls
and she says,
"Ooh, give me time
I need to find
Who I am inside."

Shorley Wall
She's selling seashells up on Shorley Wall
Where the ocean swells and leaves you small
She's selling seashells up on Shorley Wall
Just watch the moonrise up on Shorley Wall
Who could ask for more?

Can you see
The moonlight
Like a chandelier across the ocean where the mermaids sing?
Take your shoes off
And step into the ocean on the path of light

"Like a broken arrow
I'll catch the tail wind and draw the clouds
Burning sugar
As black as smoke
It clothes the walls
I open my heart
She sings when she hurts
It's good to sink deep inside
To my only touchstone
She's a friend in the dark
My strength, my memories
She delights in torture
She holds my hand but never shields me
Because the best shield is to accept the pain
Then what can really destroy me?
Let me close my eyes and lie invisible
And perhaps the clouds will pass through me."
