Billy Bragg – Secret Of The Sea lyrics

Who can guess the secret of the sea?
Who can guess the secret of the sea?
If you can guess the secret of my love for you
We can both know the secret of the sea

Tell me could you ever tell the secret of the sea?
Of these high rolling waves along the shore?
The footprints of the lovers that come here to love
By the tides washed away forever more

Who can guess the secret of the sea?
Who can guess the secret of the sea?
If you can guess the secret of my love for you
We can both know the secret of the sea

You claim to know the secret of a kiss and a hug
And the secret of grass and of the trees
And if you can tell the secret of a warm friends hand
Then we all would feel the secrets of the sea

Who can guess the secret of the sea?
Who can guess the secret of the sea?
If you can guess the secret of my love for you
We can both know the secret of the sea
