DOWN BY THE SEA

Down by the sea all the boys and the ladies stroll in the breeze
Setting sun on the city
Lights one by one and the birds flying crazy
Heart in her palm, did he know?
Yes, or maybe not

Down by the sea she will wait underneath the palm trees
And dream of the days, slow and balmy
Slender and brown, dressed in white
All the virgins, hands over mouths
Something sly, something urgent

Time has a funny way of holding, then letting go
Evening drifts slowly into morning before you know

Down by the sea mothers play with their children laughing
And she brings them sweets every Sunday
After her tea, which she takes on fine China
Still in her grandmother’s house on the Malecon

Time has a funny way of holding, then letting go
Evening drifts slowly into morning before you know

Down by the sea where they walk
All the ladies smile in their sleeves, and they talk
Something shady
Lights one by one and the birds flying crazy
Heart in her palm, did he know?
Yes, or maybe not

Time has a funny way of holding, then letting go
Evening drifts slowly into morning before you know
