Some people draw lines in the sand
I stretch my hopes and walk over rocks
My soul goes swimming with sharks
in Lynton bay.
I'd like to sit here with my man one day,
Sing till dawn,
Lay my bones flat and wet in the silky rocks,
Let the southern winds shape me like a sea stone,
But I won't make it this time I'm afraid,
I'm leaving this promise behind,
A murmured prayer floods the tide so high
While I turn my back on the sea
Something moves inside
As a stealing thief
I'm taking this rocky beach as my sole Valentine.
