One day while bathing in the sea
My talking dolphin spoke to me
He spoke to me in symphony
From freedom's peace beneath the sea
He looked to me eyes full of love
Said yes we live behind the sun

Behind the sun

The sun goes up
And the sun gets down
But like the heart of the sun
My heart continues to pound

Now while I shower in the rain
I watch my dolphin swim away
The one who listens to the surf
Can feel the pulse beat of the earth
And like my dolphin swims so free
The sun does swim into the sea

Behind the sun

An island flying through the sky
One day your son might ask you why
And if you son should be a girl
She too might ask you of this world
The sun shines sweet upon your beach
And yes my dolphin loves to teach

Behind the sun

The sun goes up
And the sun gets down
But like the heart of the sun
My heart continues to pound

If you want me to stay
I'll be around today
To be available for you to see
I'm about to go there
Then you'll know
For me to stay here
I've got to be me

You'll never be in doubt
That's what it's all about
You can't take me for granted and smile
Count the days I'm gone
Forget reachin' me by phone
Cause I promise

I'll be gone for a while
And when you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person

That you really are now
You got to get it straight
How could I ever be late
When you're my woman
Taking up my time

Oh how could I ever allow
I guess I wonder how
I could get out a pocket for fun
When you know that
You're never number two
Number one's gonna be number one

I'll be good
I wish I could
Get this message over to you now
When you see me again

I hope that you have been
The kind of person
That you really are now
I'll be so good
I wish I could

Get this message over to you now
Get this message over to you now
I'll be so good
I wish I could

never too soon to be through
being cool too much too soon
too much for me too much for you
you're gonna loose in time
every turn looking to burn
some never learn live and learn
stop your searching for a curse
before you end up in a hearse
don't be afraid to show your friends
that you hurt inside inside
pain's part of life don't hide behind your false pride
it's a lie your lie
don't slip away and don't forget
i'll give you more than you can get
it's so lonely when you don't even know
yourself come to me
if you see me getting mighty
if you see me getting high
knock me down
i'm not bigger than life
i'm tired of being untouchable
i'm not above the love
i'm part of you and you're part of me
why did you go away
too late to tell you how i feel
i want you back but i get real
can you hear my falling tears
making rain where you lay
finding what you're looking for
can end up being such a bore
i pray for you most every day
my love's with you now fly away
if you see me getting mighty
if you see me getting high
knock me down
i'm not bigger than life
it's so lonely when you don't even know yourself
