"On The Beach" as written by and Bruce/marvin Welch....
Between the eyes of love I call your name
Behind those guarded walls I used to go
Upon a summer wind there's a certain melody
Takes me back to the place that I know
Down on the beach

The secrets of the summer I will keep
The sands of time will blow a mystery
No-one but you and I
Underneath that moonlit sky
Take me back to the place that I know
On the beach

Forever in my dreams my heart will be
Hanging on to this sweet memory
A day of strange desire
And a night that burned like fire
Take me back to the place that I know
On the beach

    General CommentEvery time I hear this song it takes me back to a summer spent on the beaches of the greek islands in 2002... I also think that Chris may be referring to a holiday romance...

    General CommentChris said this song is a blues one about longing to be on the beach, while being in some other place...

    My Interpretation"A day of STRANGE desire"

    The word 'strange' is interesting. Could the song be about a gay rendezvous?

    "Behind those guarded walls I used to go" and "The secrets of the summer I will keep" again sounds to me like it was 'not quite kosher', at least at the time.

    Even so, it's a song I absolutely love as it has romance, class as well as the strong atmosphere of being by the beach in a very relaxing, calm environment. It's a song that is from a purely laid-back, sand-between-toes-no-watch-on-looking-at-the-surf-in-the-late-afternoon place :)
