lyrics

Seaside

What a day to be seaside in the middle of the earth
With the blue sky above us and the dancing sand’s curse
It’s a time to be young, a time to be free
O my Lord how it feels
Love isn’t always as real it seems

What a day to be seaside in the middle of the earth
The fire in my mind is only getting worse
And to have you here by my side o how it feels
But forbidden love isn’t always as real as it seems

I’m coming home I’m only a mile away
I’m coming home I’m only a mile away

What a day to be seaside in the middle of the earth
The hand of God is painted all over the birds
And they’re high above with wings outstretched
And o my lord how it must feel
Floating high above this dramatic scene

What a day to be seaside in the middle of the earth
Even the stoic man loses tears on his shirt
And it’s time to be great and it’s time to be seen
O lord how it must be
O but love isn’t always as real as it seems

I’m coming home I’m only miles away
I’m coming home I’m only miles away

What a day to be seaside in the middle of the earth
All the dirt around us but the spirit sees no curves
Only the weight of time and you here with me
O lord how it’s gonna be
What a day to be seaside waiting on eternity

Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy's 'Serious Face' album is a throwback in time to an era of blues, soul, and roots music. Essentially a summer road trip album full of good vibes and great story telling, the album goes from all out slide guitar 'blues grit' to warm firelight ballads. ... more
