      The Coming of the Sea

      1986

      I've slept, slept in Iowa
      I've swam in the sea
      I've been to so many
      But never to me
      Until You
      I've walked so long
      Forced feelings to be strong
      that when ever I felt
      It always felt wrong
      Until You
      And now, I am us
      and you, you are me
      yet standing in our way is the tick tock of the sea
      Calling only I and leaving behind me
      Such hell bent on hung mercy are we
      Still through this all
      Beyond the coming of the sea
      I will always Love You
      as you are now me
