Lyrics: 
Said the sea and the shore and the evening tide came in
I'm here to tell you tales of where I've been
And the shells are whispered my love songs and secret rhymes
Left in at your door for you to find
Tempered the force of my waves when your gods would roar
To carry the ships full of men that you sent off to war
I've long for you so long, said the sea to the shore

Said the shore to the sea, you left me her to long
And I was promised to the moon while you were gone
He waited until the brightest night
To demand my hand under his fullest night
And promised he'll alywas stay and watch over me
Oh why did you wait till now, said the shore to the sea

Said the sea to the shore, I swore that I'd return
And here I am with all that I have learned
I can hold you now with arms of foam spray
Touching you the coming of dusk and the breaking of day
Smoothing out the fold on every stone
Said the sea to the shore, don't leave me here alone

Said the shore to the sea, said all these things before
And I tell you, I can't hear them anymore
Oh, there was a time once I had given in
And hear your savage white caps rolling in
Your truffs would come up slow beneath my chin
Your mist would kiss me softly on my skin
Leaving salty trails where you had been
My legs would give out in your undertoll
Oh but sea, that was a long, long time ago

So the sea took one last look and turned away
And the shore was more than strong enough to stay
Castles melted back into the sand
Drift would drift it up to the land
Rocks rose a proud and shiny skin
Shows began their gossiping again.
