Feels like a dream as I'm lying on the beach
Staring up at blue sky just beyond my reach
I spread my towel on the edge of a sandy rise
And wait for the girl in green to open her eyes

And someone's shouting far away
But it doesn't matter anyway
I hope the sun don't dry your makeup
And I hope we never make up

We thought the time was right
To get a little rest for you, kid
We tried with all our might
To do the very best for you, kid
We know you need to hide
We know you're somewhere deep inside
So just sit back and wait for the tide
To rise, rise, rise....
Just wait for the tide to rise.

Now the girl rolls over with a sleepy smile
She's programmed to do that every once in a while
He sips his drink and smokes the perfect cigarette
The illusion should last a while yet
And it feels so good to hold her hand
And dig his feet into the sand
Oh, dreaming here beneath the sun
Oh, waiting for the tide to come


Picking up seashells
Listening for churchbells
Watching the ocean
In a world without motion

We've got so much to teach you
Just let the cool water reach you
And fade away...
Fade away...
Fade away...
Fade away...."
