Lyrics
Don’t be afraid this peril is likely to fade
But I’ll stay if you want me to
‘Cause here on the beach all options are within our reach
I will stay if you ask me to

Hanging around, suspended above the ground, patiently waiting our turn
Chipping away at the stones of yesterday, hoarding all we can learn

We’ve done our subdue now it’s time to commence
With the quintessential pursuit, what we long to do

Living the dream, coining lucid themes
Getting a turn at the dance
Climbing the tower, will I aptly manage the power?
I sure would welcome the chance

So here on the beach the everlasting song is just within our reach
‘Cause our day is sure coming soon, I will stay if you ask me to
