I’ve been around, seen many a face,
I’m always shuffling through the lost and the found I couldn’t replace,
and I’ve heard the sound, of a simple heart break,
taught me the difference between what tumbles down and what you can’t shake..
+++ waiting for the motion, waiting for the ferris wheel to spin,
+++ a simple locomotion carries me to you from where I’ve been,
+++ and I would go anywhere that roller coaster takes me,
+++ anyplace it stops along the way,
+++ lying by your ocean, waiting for the tide to come again..

I’d never stake any claims on you
any more than I would try to restrain the sun arising,
my only claim is that my heart beats true,
and being with you keeps me looking for the surprising… and
+++ waiting for the motion, waiting for the ferris wheel to spin,
+++ a simple locomotion carries me to you from where I’ve been,
+++ and I would go anywhere that roller coaster takes me,
+++ anyplace it stops along the way,
+++ lying by your ocean, I think I feel the tide…a-comin’ in…
