The waves build and crash on the shore
The louder they are
The more peaceful and serene they become
The birds sound their calls
Almost like an echo
Oh, to be able to stay
While my troubles melt away
A world apart
From the place
Where my heart aches
As I watch and I listen
To the lullaby of the ocean
