Singing salted sailors
Sleeping on the decks
The whales have all gone down
To the lower depths
Many seas to follow through
Many sailor?s bait to pass
Hoping that the moon and the sky
Will cover up my past
My first love was a fairy tale
The days were our ship
Daily we would sail
My first love was a summer tale
The sun was our ship
Daily we would sail
Water sand castles
Build new ones
Let the old ones die away
Water sand castles
Build new ones
Let them fall to the spray
Diana, she?s a goddess
She sails an ivory jammer
Likes to sail in hurricanes
Through wind, water and clamour
We bathed together
?Neath a high waterfall
We dove from cliff to sea
When we heard the siren?s call

pretty original sound and arangement. liked how the guitar goes into cut time in the verses. clever

Effective intro with the sound effects and the guitar work. Interesting counterpoint between the guitar work and the voice. Nice harmony. Also interesting time/tempo changes that keeps the interest up. Very nice work with inspired lyrics.
