Along The Beach

I could stay here all night 
Listening to the foamy waves
Crash against the soft creamy sea.
I sink my toes in,  loving the feeling 
That flows up my spine and makes me smile 
All I want to do is take in the sensation 
That is now overwhelming me 
I want more, as I breath in the air 
As if it were a drug I can never get enough of
I could take it in forever 
As I glance up at the night sky 
I feel myself get lost in the deep dream like blue 
I stair mesmerized, so hard to look away
The wind blows and tickles my face 
It's the only thing that brings me back 
To the people who laugh, and walk along with me
I feel slightly guilty for a moment 
Because I haven't said a word. 
Letting the feeling slip away quickly with my mind 
I stop to think about how great it would be 
To have you beside me right now 
Running your toes through the creamy sand
Breathing in the air you can never get enough of 
Looking up at the starry blue sky 
Feeling the wind sweeping through your hair 
And kiss me as we walk along together 
However, all I can do is laugh 
Because you're all that's on my mind 
And I just can't get enough.
