As the notes take me
I try to remember
The ocean
Mom and Dad stand by me
Deeper we go
Jumping big waves
My parents lifting me up to jump
Dolphin fins out in the horizon
Laughing then
Longing now
For the sea to sweep me
Off the ocean floor
As it did a few years ago
If only I could go back
Into childhood memories
See what I did not savor enough
Be there once more
And I go there
As I fall sound asleep
And my dreams carry me back out to sea
