"The Sea" as written by and R. Godfrey P. Godfrey....
Flocking to the sea
Crowds of people wait for me
Sea gulls scavenge
Steal ice cream
Worries vanish
Within my dream

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

Fishing boats sail past the shore
No singing may-day any more
The sun is shining
The Water's clear
Just you and I walk along the pier

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

A cool breeze flows but mind the wasp
Some get stung it's worth the cost
I'd love to stay
The city calls me home
More hassles fuss and lies on the phone

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control with you,
And living, living,
And I, living, by the sea

    General CommentWhen I hear this song I imagine a lonely dock overlooking the sea and then this girl in a flowy dress on a cliff overlooking the dock.

    My InterpretationMe finks this song is about someone who longs back to a certain holiday or vacationspot, where they got themselves lost in joyous lustful activities and managed to surpress the stress of everyday life.

    General CommentI believe this song is about the sea.... if i am correct it seems he has left his sould down there hence him saying
    I left my soul there,
    Down by the sea
    I lost control with you,
    And living, living,
    And I, living, by the sea

    he says that multiple times, hence implying he left his soul down by the sea, and thats what this song is about, the sea, cuz that is what the song is called

    so i will create a mathematical eqwuation to hsow you what this song means

    the sea=the sea


    thats whati belive
