SONG LYRICS

The Bay

Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

D Asus Dsus D
Just a kid walking on the evening sand
D G D D7
Lost, and building castles in the air,
G A D G Bm7/F#
Waves roll in and wash away the footprints of my life
Em G A Dsus D
But leave those empty castles hanging there.

I still feel the warm and salty summer breeze
Stirring littered mem’ries in my mind
Echoing the laughter of the friends I used to know;
Whispers from the folks I left behind.

(Chorus)
A D G Em7
Crimson clouds, golden seas, burning skies
A A7 D D7
Painting timeless pictures for my eyes.
G A D G Bm7/F#
Feel that I could just reach out and touch my yesterdays
Em G A Dsus D
When I see the sun go down across the bay.

Out on the sea of life so far from sure
Lonely thoughts, like birds, are roaming free;
Wandering through my memories on the days I dare to explore
I feel those distant skies are calling me.

(Chorus)
Crimson clouds, golden seas, burning skies
Painting timeless pictures for my eyes.
Feel that I could just reach out and touch my yesterdays
When I see the sun go down across the bay.

G A~ D G Bm7/F#
The world is slowly turning, it steals another day,
Em G A Dsus D
When I see the sun go down across the bay.
