LyricsEdit

The sea wants to kiss the golden shore,
The sunlight warms your skin,
All the beauty that’s been lost before
Wants to find us again

I can’t fight you anymore,
It’s you I’m fighting for
The sea throws rocks together
But time
Leaves us polished stones

We can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

Birds fly high in the summer sky
And rest on the breeze,
The same wind will take care of you and I,
We’ll build our house in the trees

Your heart is on my sleeve,
Did you put it there with a magic marker?
For years I would believe
That the world couldn’t wash it away

‘Cause we can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

Are we tough enough
For ordinary love?

We can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

We can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love
