It was a glorious spring day.
At the beach with friends watching the day slip away.
Two lovers caught in a summer haze.
The bikes lay in the sand.
I was a boy on his way to becoming a man-
Standing at the edge of the surf - no man's land.
The sun behind me, i heard someone running.
Saw your shadow behind me coming.
Split second choice - I stayed put standing.
You knocked me into the.waves.
You were laughing. You thought it was great.
I swore to myself I'd never tell you that it was faked.
You needled me all day,
- it was a higlight to you-
How I got knocked over by you.
All I could think was, if you only knew.
Now those days are long gone.
And after the storms abated I found myself alone.
Me and those many things that you will never know.
