Lyrics

The Sea and a Song

Written By: John Carroll

A seaside bar draws a crowd on a warm night
Where a gypsy enthralls the men with they're drinks
Her voice starts low, then fills out the stage light
She sings with the sea as it curls, thick as ink.

(chorus)
She rolls her hips slowly with the pulse of the tide
Her voice snaps, the waves clap
Making music in the night
The notes play in the sea spray
And all the time I'm wondering
If this is love

Home life is stale as the day job
Draped over bar stools, they're all running away
Gathered here are the joes of the work mob
Brushing the fringes of happier days

(chorus)
She rolls her hips slowly with the pulse of the tide
Her voice snaps, the waves clap
Making music in the night
The notes play in the sea spray
And all the time I'm wondering

(bridge)
How much she carries the room on her shoulders
Like drift wood afloat in the bay
The smell of the sea and a song
Can lift them away.

(chorus)
She rolls her hips slowly with the pulse of the tide
Her voice snaps, the waves clap
Making music in the night
The notes play in the sea spray
And all the time I'm wondering
If this is love.
