Listen To The Ocean 01.08.2009


.................Nina and Frederick

Living my life to the accompaniment of
a song in my heart, I mostly remember
the refrain, hubby and the kids live in
perpetual discontent as I keep singing
the refrain playing in my head

Looking up lyrics on the Internet to learn
the words, maybe then I will be allowed
to sing my songs at home, my favourite
is ‘Listen to the Ocean’ by Nina and
Frederick

Turning like a broken gramophone in my
head, over and over, enchanting rhythm,
words divine, melody sublime: ‘Listen to
the ocean, echoes of a million seashells,
forever it's in motion

Moving to a rhythmic and unwritten
music that's played eternally…’

******************************
LISTEN TO THE OCEAN
Nina & Frederick – 1960
(Nina Möller / Frederick Von Pallandt)

There's a world of sun and sand, full of
sky and far from land, where evening
breezes caress the shore like a gentle
comforting hand

Fragrant blossoms, honey bees, careless
laughter upon the breeze and lovers
fading to pools of deep purple
shadows among the trees

Listen to the ocean, echoes of a million
seashells, forever it's in motion, moving
to a rhythmic and unwritten music
that's played eternally
