Track Name: Beaches…
Beaches (V. Polichar)

How many times do I have to laugh before you hear me?
How many times must I walk away?
Oh... the beaches...
Oh... the beaches...

Towering dunes of sand above the cliffs in my mind:
nobody feels like I do.
Oh... the beaches...
Oh... the beaches...

Oh. It's a long time ago,
already. It's sort of fading.

How many times do you have to jump?
How many times before you fall?
Oh... put your hand in her hand...
Oh... put your hand in her hand...

The path that leads down to the sea
is covered over. [Spoken: No one walks there anymore.]
Oh... you'll go alone...
Oh... you'll go alone...

Don't you understand?
You haven't got a choice.
It falls away.

How many times are you going to laugh before you see her?
When will you realize that she's here?
Oh... the beaches...
Oh... the beaches...

Can you see her waiting in the long
grass by the cliffside by the sea?

When you've forgotten every word we ever said,
will you still know my face and name?

Will you remember the beaches?
Oh... the beaches...
Oh... the beaches...

Will you remember the beaches?
