from by Lyle King



There's a girl I knew
Who would stand beside the ocean
Carving her name in the sand
With her shaking hands

And no one ever knew
Just who she really was
Although they played along just fine
They never took the time

But I think I struck a chord somewhere
With a song I sang her once
And although it wasn't much I sang to her

I said you'll always be the one I hold
You know all of my life
I've been turning left not right
But I finally see the light
You'll always be the one I crave every day
Oh you know no matter where I go
I won't let go
I'll stay, I'll stay
