Lyrics

Do you always trust your first, initial feeling
Special knowledge holds true, bears believing
I turned around and the water was closing all around
Like a glove, like the love that had finally, finally found me

Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you
Drove me through the mountains
Through the crystal-like and clear water fountain
It drove me like a magnet
To the sea…
To the sea…
To the sea, yeah

How the faces of love have changed, turning the pages
And I have changed, oh but you, you remain ageless
I turned around and the water was closing all around
Like a glove, like the love that had finally, finally found me

And then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you
Drove me through the mountains
Through the crystal-like and clear water fountain
It drove me like a magnet
To the sea…
To the sea…
To the sea…yeah
To the sea…yeah
