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
Living

And I, living
By the sea

    essentially, this is the audio equivalent of an autumn day at the beach. clouds in the sky, a chill in the air, but still very peaceful. wonderful

    When 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 Interpretation

    Me 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.

    This song is about someone that relishes that one spot... the place they can release and be themselves.. so much that they want to leave their soul there to return each time nd enjoy it.. over and over. Ordinary things are appreciated and can be special there.. the sea.

    No more may days; nothing bad can happen here... life is simple fun and free.. of bullshit and just like a warm blanket for their soul.
