The Wedding Present -
"At The Edge Of The Sea"

[ from the album "Tommy" (1988) ]

Lyrics

We lie in this salty embrace
A sunny day, this special place
Tonight the sea is ours
And restless with sand in our shoes
A golden mile, that special smile
Asleep in a lover's arms

And if heaven sent a kiss
Would it be something like this?
Would it soar above the waves?
Is that how a kiss behaves?
Is that how a kiss behaves?

And colours so icy and bright
Are swimming round my head tonight
A clear and sleepy tide
But watch with a heavier heart
As I try to tear it all apart
With a greed that's all my own

And if heaven sent a kiss
Would it be something like this?
Would it soar above the waves?
Is that how a kiss behaves?
Is that how a kiss behaves?
Why don't you tell me?
