Lonely in the red blazing sun
Waiting for the moonlight to come
Kneeling in the sand all undone

Lovely fool, I can see you crying
All your tears are Mine

Pearls from pebbles form
Take your time, oyster in the sand
Let the seed be sown
It will rise
Lift your eyes and watch the tide's parade

Slowly souls are polished to white
Slowly darkness gives way to light
Slowly patience harvests the night

Sunburnt saint, take My benediction
Bless the sea again

Pearls from pebbles form
Take your time, oyster in the sand
Let the seed be sown
It will rise
Lift your eyes and watch the tide's parade
