Lyrics

We come to the beach searching for something
No we don’t know what thing but it’s just out of reach
And the beach welcomes us and sorts out the voices
We make some new choices and slowly become us

Some race to the water with reckless abandon
And quick stick their toes in and nothing’s the matter
And others steer clear they stay on the dry sand
Read the book in their hand still the journey has taken them here

And we are all broken like the shells we pass by
In search of the whole ones which happen to catch our eye
Yes we are all broken but we are beautiful
And nothing is perfect still we all feel the pull of the beach

It’s never the perfect still, prone to the crack and peel
You’ll live on my windowsill where you’ll catch my eye
Maybe I’ll catch your eye

But whatever the reason and whatever the season
We all find ourselves on our way to the beach
We’re searching for something, but we don’t know what thing
But whatever it is well it’s just out of reach

Some come here to walk and to think about life
Some to fly kites and to watch seagulls flock
Still others are fishing the buoys are ringing
And some come for singing and dancing and wishing

And we are all broken like the shells we pass by
In search of the whole ones which happen to catch our eye
Yes we are all broken but we are beautiful
And nothing is perfect still we all feel the pull of the beach
