alexthomasdavis – Born In A Race lyrics

Greetings form upon a wave
Weeping from across the way

Stealing pebbles from their friends
I was born in a race
There was no time to waste
In this lifetime, you know I long to stay
Bubbles greet the friendly air
Worried from the seabed floor

Troubles greet you when you stare
Couples dance across the sands
Lollies melt across the hands
Woman jealous of her man
Waving as the sun goes down
Angry men and women frown
Everybody hits the town

I was born in a race
And was given a place
In this lifetime, you know I long to stay

    This song is about that trip to the beach. You are Born In A Race though, so you know it won't last, even though you want it to last forever! Its taken from a poem I wrote many years ago, the chord pattern is beautiful in this song, one of my faves.
