Placid Blue Dreams

A love song for Japan.

Can't you see the lightning on the sand?

It's running across in thin, yellow bands

Baby, can't you see? I want to go back to the sea

It probably was the wind in my hair

Because I'm hooked like a fish, I'm caught in a snare

Maybe it's just me, but I want to go back to the sea

Some might say it's fantasy

But couldn't it be reality

With you? You and me?

We could buy a bungalow

On the equator where it doesn't snow

Baby, hold me please - I'm starting to miss the sea

We'll learn the languages we don't understand

I'll be your wife and you'll be my man

Could we make it three when we live down by the sea?

Some might say it's fantasy

But couldn't it be reality

With you? You and me

If I had a boy I'd name him Maximilian

Or from the Young Ones - Vyvyan

V-y-v-y-a-n, V-y-v-y-a-n!

If it was a girl, how about Allison

Or Velouria, like the Pixies' songs?

V-e-l-o-u-r-i-a, V-e-l-o-u-r-i-a!

You might think I'm in over my head

But when I'm laying down in my bed

I see you and me living down by the sea...

The End
