That wave
Through the greeney grey pebbles
That wave
Turning spires and spittle of pearls
I flew down to the bottom of the sea
I was in heaven
They danced and laughed spelling all I fell into was love
Carried me through your hair
The perfumed cushions cascading
Pushed me into your skin
Giddy with planets parading
Where I questioned the blue birds all about it
Address cloud eleven
That wave!
Pulled me right overboard
Emotional action painting
Where I questioned the fishes all about it
Address cloud eleven
