Outside all was darkness, it was late 
but the noise had woken me.

what was going on outside, so I 
climbed out of bed to stare out the window.
It was to hazy...

The sea

We hop out of the car, and shuffle down
To the seashore seeing birds dive as the waves pound
Sand swims showing shiny shells, sunlight silhouettes shadows
So we can keep our skin safe, while our clothes stay loose

 
Seagulls screech soaring...
