Another Way of Looking

Now the sun is shining, there's a mist rolling up from the sea;
There's another way of looking at everything we used to be.
I could catch you unawares, smiling that secret smile:
I have to say - it's been a while.

There's a hot wind blowing that don't mean no-one no good;
I've got no way of knowing when you're leaving, or why you should.
The mist is clearing, restless as the sea:
Waves breaking over me.

Now the seagulls are skimming the rising waves,
You ain't alone to feel the lure of the tide;
I've always known you'd be leaving one day,
From the weight in your heart your eyes could never hide .... from me.


I will always remember flying on the wings of our dream
You were the most beautiful person that I had ever seen;
You could say our love was doomed right from the start -
I only know I broke your heart.

Now the seagulls are skimming the rising waves,
You ain't alone to feel the lure of the tide;
I've always known you'd be leaving one day,
From the weight in your heart your eyes could never hide .... from me.
