It was so peaceful, sat there, elbows on knees, sitting in my bikini, digging my toes into the sand, the sun on my shoulders, washing over me…melting away the pain.
There’d be no one around at all, on my little beach over the road from our little yellow house. I was in another world staring over the lovely blue ocean dragging on my Gauloises cigarette, watching as the ocean changed colour and ebbed and flowed, gently swishing about –– just me and the shifting sand – mesmerized by flickering shades of blues and greens whilst millions of diamonds danced all over it in the sunlight.
The silence invited me in to that special place of acceptance into nature itself, I felt hugged and ceased pondering my existence. I love the sun, it changes things, the water never stayed the same.
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high
If I had a day that I could give you
I’d give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I’d sing a song to make you feel this way
