Shelter and the Sea

from Seaside by Mike McCarthy

supported by


A new version of an old song recorded especially for SEASIDE.


Shelter and the Sea

Morning glow
Makes me feel so alive today
Glare off the river glass
Drifting, drifting away

River, sand, pebbles
Clear water, blue sky
Can't tell if i'm dreaming
Or just losing my mind

Yes i've found a place to run
I've found a place that i could live
With only the essentials
Shelter and the sea

I need good reason to stay
And good reason to leave
Yet everything is meaningless
A chasing after the wind

So the tale grows
We're all still in love with time
Yet all that time gives
Is just a waste of my mind
