AlbumThe Day We Ran Into The Sea
Songwriters: Sarah Howells, Richard Llewellyn

Lost like the sun in a summer,
Lost like my words to your ears,
Lost like the notion of now and forever,
And like my comfortable years.

To go a long way round to find this out,
And it seems you had so much to say,
And I drowned you out.

Shame that we didn’t quite make it,
Shame ’cause you know me so well,
Shame that we’ll wash out with sensory pleasure,
When I’m under another spell.

‘Cause it’s a long way round to find this out,
And it seems you had so much to say,
And I drowned you out.

Love like you’ve never loved before,
Love like you’ll never again,
Love like you’re lost in some old fashioned movie,
And it all works out right in the end.

‘Cause it’s a long way round,
To find this out,
And it seems you had so much to say,
And I drowned you out.

Take the long way round,
To find this out,
And it seems you had so much to say,
And I drowned you out.

And it seems you sang the sweetest songs,
And I’m lost without.

It’s hard to pick up a song and write something about it. Personally, I don’t dig modern romantic songs; they make me uncomfortable. But there are always exceptions, and here is one. This song stands apart from the modern trend of strait-forward lyrics, and captures some of the old folkish charm in the process.
