Pearl

Don’t know why I didn’t call
The sun came and I saw the break of day
Standing in the sea my feet drenched in the sand
It’s endless

You are a pearl.
Fragile as a child
Fallen without a sound
A heart fallen to the ground
All alone

Do you wonder how to find your way in
Darkness on a cloudy day
Come away with me and I’ll show you how to love
A Kiss on a mountain top and I’ll run away with you

Sing to the rain, look to the clouds and come away with me
Open your heart
Smell the sweet flowers
You told me we had to be lonely
But you know the reasons we had to leave

I’ll wait for you
Until you want to come on home to me
Where are you, I just don’t know.
