From our house on the beach I’ve been watching the sea Coming closer and closer and leaving again Sum and divide like the blink of an eye Still missing the feeling of home
Oh no no no, you can’t help it at all Everything changes and nothing remains My hands are enough to contain you and me Not to possess, you and me
And while I am embracing you I could feel your whole being As if you are swimming in my hollow, as if the whole sea is in there Everything flows and nothing remains, but the big helpless waves, Pushed and pulled again
Everything changes and nothing stands still Salt skin, sunburn As if I am undressed, as if I am outside of my own shell See how far I can swim?
A wave and a wave and a wave and a wave From our house on the beach I’ve been watching the sea We are the ocean, see The water accepted our wounds and swept away our private domains
Goosebumps, legs kicking Still you carry me From our house on the beach I’ve been watching the sea You come closer and closer and leave me again
