Lyrics

Counting grains of sand( lyrics )

I was a fool 
to think that I could take a plane
to think that I could fly away
and let the miles between us make the choices

that I couldn’t face
and now I’m sitting on the shore
less certain than I was before
unwilling and unable to let go

the sun and the sea
are not doing it for me
the waves in the wind
are not enough
this time they’re not enough

I was cold
I tried to stay out of your way
exactly why I couldn’t say
it’s just that everything was more then slightly off beat
more then slightly off beat…

Your counting the raindrops in New York
I’m counting the grains of sand in Puerto Rico

the sun and the sea
are not doing it for me
the waves in the wind
are not enough
this time they’re not enough
to save my soul 
not enough to save my love 
not enough to save my sanity
in this ocean of emotion  - not enough...

Your counting the raindrops in New York
I’m counting the grains of sand in Puerto Rico
