lyrics

the waves peel in one by one then stop
and the children in the cottage, by the window watch
sitting on the ocean, i swell up inside
as the sun sets over my shoulder
i glide on her crest and i ride down her side

the howling white horses break the silence in waves
gallop on by me then roll up the coast with such grace
one sings to me and i point to the east
and i feel her foot fall and i hear her call
then i'm sailing, riding the tide

i step off the side as she whispers to the evening's shore
swallows a castle of sand and then lays down to rest
the children laugh as their afternoon fades
to the sea, and i take my board and i ride into the night
with the warmth of peace and tranquility inside
----

dictaphone noise
("est-ce que t'es deja tomber en amoureux?")
