Between us air, sea and light:
All waves, all life in motion.
Come ride their crests tonight!
Gale force winds upon the ocean
Do not daunt the strong at heart;
We’ll in the middle meet before we part!
The breeze off the lake is a pussy cat;
All tame, it curls itself around our feet
And gently laps our toes, it is so round and fat!
Not so the night wind that descends the slopes to meet
The sea, and mighty are the waves that form
The white caps that I ride for love rip torn.
We share the same blood in our veins
The two of us, so close we are, we can but fight
And like the waves we clash to foam and strain
Each one for pride of place… Let us this night
Remember who we are and once, just once, be kind:
To survive a force 6 storm our very souls must be entwined.
