Drifting Elemental Wonder
-----------------

I want that you should feel
the essence that's within me
and the spirit inside us all
Light and sound in the hall

Thumping and rising ethereal
Pumping from public material
Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
Ecstatic and spreading emotion

Floating over shores that we know
Ripples continually washing
White noise bathing with vibrance
Rejoicing in heavenly guidance

Casting off deep seated boundaries
Musing on southwardly autumn
Never alone, eternal companions
Ourselves floating, reveried abandon

Pleasure expressing our musings
Spirits are trailing above us
Between edges of earth and water
We've seen bridges beckoing yonder

Drifting Elemental Wonder x4

Mind captured in fascination
Our eyes beholding the splendor
Breathtaking peeks through the window
Earthshaking streaks from the inflow

Snowflakes above, sand down below
Driftwood, floats over the waves
Reflections of love in the mist
From the shores we have been kissed

Leaves fall from the heavens
Tides come, they push and they pull
Dancing for miles, sweat breaking
Dreams of gentle waves wake me

Drifting Elemental Wonder
The beats keep rising ethereal
Drifting Elemental Wonder
A peace overcomes me so surreal
Drifting Elemental Wonder
Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
Drifting Elemental Wonder
Ecstatic and spreading emotion

Right here, now. there and then
Old thoughts of likenesses float past
Presented far off the horizon
From the shores we now see an island

Myself always sees you eternal
Facing our next steps unknown
The beautiful voices uplifting
Impalpable breezes, we're drifting

Drifting mysterious ocean
Pulls you towards me closer and closer,
We move, the music is surging
Gather, our bodies are merging

Drifting Elemental Wonder
The beats keep rising ethereal
Drifting Elemental Wonder
A peace overcomes me so surreal
Drifting Elemental Wonder
Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
Drifting Elemental Wonder
Ecstatic and spreading emotion
[Exit]
