lyrics

I can remember when I touched her hand,
It was warm and as white and as soft as the sand.
And the waves in her hair could submerge a man’s heart
With an action that renders the genders apart.
But I loved her best under unclouded skies
Where the moonlight collected and spilled from her eyes.

She could not be happy; she lived with a doubt,
A terrible yearning that had to come out.
And she laughed at good fortune and pitied the rest,
But each of us thought that the other knew best.
So she bided her time, though it just made things worse,
And what started as drama turned into a curse.

Alison waits for me down by the sea.
She never knew what she wanted to be.
Sail away, there and back,
Up from the deep where the green turns to black.
My Alison’s calling to me.
(I hear her calling, she is calling.)
Alison’s calling to me.

(development)

She had her own reasons for leaving me then,
I prayed to the ocean to free her again
From the clutch of lost souls in their watery graves,
’Cause nothing kills time like the beat of the waves.
And once time is destroyed, there’s no meaning to grief.
When a love has no future, it lives on belief.
