Glistening Bay


Lyrics

Oh those hills were tall and winding, all the roads they did divide And when we reached the top we stopped to see over the side Oh the fickle sea I’ve always loved And to this very day

I do recall that city far below me like a glistening bay. And from this imaginary bay it seems there grows a universe That night it was reflecting on the surface of the earth In between my toes I felt the dark blue grassy threads

And a chill wind caught my heart And raised the hair upon my head

I do recall I took a stone and felt it with my hand I sat there on the high cliff top upon the warming land I hid the precious stone I held inside a weathered tree The perfumed cedars caught the wind which blew in from the open sea

A handful of small coloured flowers were nestling in the grass I tossed them to the blustery sky and watched them as they danced

Oh the fickle sea I’ve always loved and to this very day I’ll see those flowers come floating down towards the glistening bay.

Oh the hills are tall and winding all the roads they do divide But when we reached the top we stopped to see over the side The fickle sea I’ve always loved like a glistening harbour

And to this very day I do recall that city far below, just like a glistening bay

It was a sad young girl I was so very far from home

I thought of home the whole night long And where the time has gone Sadness it was all I had I saw the rising sun

I watched alone the crashing waves so Far below I could have been the only one Had I not always thought of you.

I took a stone on some bright day and felt it with my hand I sat there on the high cliff top upon the warming land

To be alone upon that day Below me the crashing waves of blue

I could have been the only one Had I not always thought of you
