Jack Johnson with "Upside Down"
Do you ever feel the need for quiet, sabbath, stillness, and rest.
Does noise and activity ever wear away at the calmness of heart,
upset your balance, and cause your attitude to be crunchy as best?
I long for a beach that is filled with white sand,
with sailboats in the distance dancing in the wind.
I long for warm sunshine and the sound of surf,
with seagulls diving and my heart slowly rising.
Away from the cold of winter
and wearying away,
I'd look to the water
to find my new way.
A few days ago and friend said to me, 'I'd like to run away for a while.' and I agreed.
A day away sounds like the perfect place to be.
