I must leave you here on the shore my love,
it is time, it is time.
Buried my toes in the sand for so long,
to make you mine, make you mine.
We all long for adventure,
don’t you see, don’t you see?
You promised everything awaits beyond the horizon,
drift with me, drift with me.
To never leave high ground,
it is but fear, only fear.
Losing sight of the shore,
it’s what keeps you here, stay right here.
There is wind in my sails love,
I must go, I must go.
Oh, the life that could have been,
you’ll never know, we’ll never know.
You’re becoming so small there my dear,
grain of sand, grain of sand.
I am set free by the salty breeze,
heart in my hand, in my hand.
