Treasure Island

Beach Girl


I'd Search for You


If I could walk backwards into the night
Down dark and winding roads of pale moonlight
I’d search for you

If I could spin the earth back round the sun
To years before my heart was won
I’d wish for you

If I could fly beyond the earth's blue sky
From star to star I’d step, gazing from on high
For views of you

If like a drifting seashell I washed upon your isle
I’d hope to find you waiting there with your silly smile
I’m in love with you

    The beach for me like the sea.
    Warm waves that clean your feet.
    Pulled back in, washed up again
    there along the shore...iip (Report) Reply

    Spin the earth back round the sun
    To score your love
    And wait for the wicket
    of ashes you won in life (Report) Reply

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
