In a little town At the end of the earth Full of scent and sound Of the water Hangs a history Deep and oh so long Wild as the sea And pretty as her songs This is more than an island More than sea and shore More than tide and wind The harbor birds are crying Swooping low and fast O'er fishermen arriving Hulls heavy with their catch From a granite ledge With panoramic view The painter tilts his head To glimpse that golden blue From salty saloons To the riverside Poets sway, and singers swoon Drunk on love of light This is more than an island More than sea and shore More than tide and wind You see it in silver scales Shining in the sun In spindrift and great white sails Mysteries and tall tales Generations Living and breathing the ocean, the ocean Four hundred Years of devotion, devotion Oh, a legacy that can't be sold Oh, and we - We can't let go Now it's in our hands In our hearts and minds To live and love this land By the sea defined By the sea defined

Daisies dance by the roadside, We're cutting through the pines The only thing left to decide Is go on or turn behind We're gonna pick our path, Carve it out like water One day, find a canyon Don't you know that old Colorado River Was a drip to begin with? Tires torn on the freeway We're burning through the dust Nothing left to do or say And no one left to trust But that big sky, uncompromising Everything, yet empty We'll chase her down to the horizon By land, or sea Hey, hey, hey, hey... Tip the scales, find the light Sing our songs all through the night It won't come fast, that we know And it won't last longer than the afterglow With steady hand, and quiet mind Luck, and maybe kismet A lot of love, and a little time We're gonna make it We'll set our course by tide and stars No map to draw or follow With one voice and two guitars We'll sing our tomorrow Hey, hey, hey, hey... Tip the scales, find the light Sing our songs all through the night It won't come fast, that we know And it won't last longer than the afterglow We'll set our course by tide and stars No map to draw or follow With one voice and two guitars We'll sing our tomorrow

Sunday morning, 8 a.m. I wake hungry, Lord, again I stutter, my mind skips Bread and butter can't feed this Is heavy - it runs deep Something better give so I can Keep Oh my head now Or fall asleep And forget how So I'm searching, climbing walls Back and forth and still it calls So sweetly, so sublime Just might keep me Out of my own Mind Suspended And somehow time Is transcended Oh, while I am floating up in the atmosphere Spinning slowly Why do I keep coming back up here? It's so lonely Push the paintbrush, pluck the string Feel the head rush Lord, when you sing So freely - yet in time Feel the heartbeat Hope those stars Align Up above you And in the meantime Reach, and love to

Oh my honey, my man Where have you gone? So far from me And who knows for how long Still I keep my eyes On the horizon So maybe you can meet my gaze In the middle of the ocean The little gestures, the held hands Sleeping intertwined I won't forget them I can't - even when I try Still I keep my eyes On the horizon So maybe you can meet my gaze In the middle of the ocean With love as your tailwind You're my ocean My tide and stars So happy new year, my love In a faraway bed you sleep I know you can't hear Me above your dream choirs, so sweet Always I keep my eyes On the horizon And I know you will meet my gaze In the middle of the ocean
