about

The song had a story to tell and I told a version of it here, another version in the future. Not about suicide as much as giving over to the moon and the water to become other and else and next.

lyrics

The rolling of the sea will be forever haunting me

Covered with the moon
I went walking along the shore
The sand beneath my feet
My ragged dress is torn
I could have sworn
That it was new this morning
Or was it last week?
Where’s the time gone?

The rolling of the sea will be forever haunting me

Turning from the moon
I wandered into the waves
And as I touched eternity
The ocean bled my name
And I could blame it
For reminding me
That I am too weak
Where’s the time gone?

The rolling of the sea will be forever haunting me

Floating with the sea
I went drifting far from shore
The salt was in my eyes
I went out with the tide
I couldn’t hide
That I was dying
The sand had run through
And there’s the time gone

The rolling of the sea will be forever haunting me
The rolling of the sea will be forever haunting me
