Today you looked around to my heart's call
This tiny life ain't been strangled after all
Time, time, time, time
Never ask what's become of us
Just dedicate your sorrow
Here and now
To the soul of the sea
And me

Rushin' to me
You turned around to my song's call
You dreamer in the sand
Just lie there laughing til the fall
Kindest lover
I can't stay alone tonight
Bring me all your love
Here and now
Come rushin' to me

Wake up late
Without a smile
Telephone rings
You run like a child
On the street
Into the day
The people I meet
Have nothing to say

No smile
No sorrow
No laughter
No tomorrow
They talk hen to hen
They talk about their men
And practice all the tricks for them
Too soon nightime's coming on
Deep in the darkness feeling alone

No rain
No seed
No dreams
No silence
Far away today
Mama ocean hold me to you
Rock me on your waves
And tell me...
Is it all true?

Time, time, time, time
Never ask what's become of us
Dedicate your sorrow
Here and now
To the soul the sea and me

    its pretty much....The singer (Anne) is sick of the conformist "everyday" life and just wants to be peaceful and have no time restraints.

    Mmm... definitely. It makes me want to stand in the middle of the ocean, and stretch my arms like I just woke up there. I feel for the singer and understand her wishes, time is a measuring stick that can constrain your life to a T. It's better to get a bit lost and allow the ocean of life to take you elsewhere.

    I may be way off here, but it almost sounds like someone trapped in the sex industry dreaming and longing for genuine love and a life of freedom from exploitation. Some parts fit that and some definitely don't. I'd love to hear the real inspiration from Ann & Nancy. ;-)
