no water but the sea

words and music by

john greene

 

seduced by the sun, tempted by heat, beautiful bodies asleep on the beach,

and it's all the same, wherever you go, only the colors change,

and 10 days feels, just like 10 years, with no old way of living,

finally accepting, that there's sailing no more, i ran away from the noise,

 

i had to leave, so i could come back to stay,

the world had changed and i didn't know it

tear life apart, just to build it again,

i had changed and i didn't know it

and there was no water but the sea

 

in starlit darkness, heading home, i cross the bridge and it starts to rain,

live with the good memories, live with the bad, i won't throw myself off the edge again

 

i had to leave, so i could come back to stay,

the world had changed and i didn't know it

tear life apart, just to build it again,

i had changed and i didn't know it

and there was no water but the sea
