Story Behind the Song

A man falls in love with a woman who is unavailable. They share some forbidden moments on a beach and then part. Allusions to Lancelot and Gwenyvere.


well it happened down there where the eastern wind blows to die
where the land meets the sea and the sea falls asleep on its side
well it was earler even than when morning first wakes
and he reached for her hand in the sand near the point
where the very first waves break
he said, "look, it's orion and his belt."
she said, "i know this already;
i just wanted you to tell me so i'd know how it felt."

at the first light of day they walked down by the shore
he watched the sun sing sonnets on her shoulders it was too much for him to ignore
she said, "watch out you'll get lost in the sea."
he said, "i know this already."
"I just wanted you to tell me that ocean was me."

she dug in the sand and her hands moved fast, strong, and free.
he looked for the sun, but the dawn in her eyes was all he could see
she said, "you can't build a castle without walls."
he said, "that's not quite true."
"besides we, are not a castle at all."

with her head tilted sideways she looked just like gwenivere.
and he the queen's knight and the king not in sight he held her so near
he said, "i know that you love him and that's right."
"and i know that it's wrong, but nobody can tear you from me tonight."

"well you know we're just stardust and our lust is longing for what used to be
i'm not saying you're wrong or i'm stronger i'm just thinking about time you and me
and i just want to kiss you once 'fore i go."
she said, "i know this already."
he just smiled , he said, "tell me now, what don't you know."
