"While Drifting" as written by and Rod Mckuen Anita Kerr....
This is the way it was
While I was waiting for your eyes to find me
I was drifting, going no place
Hypnotized by sunshine maybe
Barking back at seagulls along the beach
Skipping flat stones on the water,
But much too wise for sandcastles
My castles were across the sea
Still within my mind
There were the beach bars
and the other beach people
Sometimes little bedrooms were my beach
But I was drifting.
I must have thought the night could save me
As I went down in the pillows,
Looked up through dirty windows,
Smiled back through broken mattresses,
and kissed in elevators.
I cry too sometimes for me I guess
I loved every face I thought looked pretty
and every kindred eye I caught in crowds.
But I was drifting
Before you.
