Edge of the Ocean
Lorne Warr

Just a little note to say
I thought of you the other day
Nothing special really, just a flicker of your face
Just a memory
Of a day we spent beside the sea
When life was light and bright and every star was in it's place

On a Sunday afternoon
Through the window of our room
The music drifted softly and woke us gently from our sleep
Without a word, without a plan
Through narrow streets, hand in hand
We followed til we found a crowd around him on the quay

Round and round on the edge of the ocean
The old man played the button box for the children on the quay
Round and round by the sea in the summer
We danced round the dock while the accordion played

Squeezebox jumping on his knee
He played a tune for you and me
"For love," he said, and music soared like the seagulls in the sun
With children dancing on the pier
And a blush of sunlight in your hair
You laughed as I took your hand and gently spun you round


The music swirled as we twirled in dance
The children laughed, the seagulls pranced
And a breeze bobbed the white sails behind us on the bay
And an old couple on the pier smiled and joined us dancing there
As you put you arms around my neck and we began to sway


Time goes by, we get older
Sundays seem a little colder
That's alright, things are just the way they have to be
And we all know from the start
That people change and lovers part
It's just now and then I think about that Sunday by the sea

Chorus (x2)
