lyrics

Shoreline In Jersey

Shoreline in Jersey,
With shells at my feet.
Coffee’s getting colder,
But it’s sweet, oh so sweet.
And the sun is rising,
As I sit here and I’m pining,
In Jersey, in Jersey.

Seagull is dancing,
As the water starts to creep.
Searching for a meal now,
As the water retreats.
And the cycles dividing,
And it’s my time that I’m biding,
In Jersey, in Jersey.

Tracing the horizon,
Where the ocean and sky meet.
Water looks peaceful,
But it’s a circus not far beneath.
And it sure feels funny,
All the diversions caused by money.
Think of where we’d be, how we’d see.

Remembering the shooting stars,
On a blanket amongst the cars.
Indiana was a start,
By New York you stole my heart.
And Debbi G she called you “sweet pea”,
And the memory still warms me,
As I sit here, yeah, I sit here,
In New Jersey, in New Jersey.

Singing and thinking,
And trying to retreat.
Away from the patterns,
That stunt the speech,
Of my soul and don’t you know,
That’s it’s embracing the soul,
Of Jersey, of Jersey.

And the water’s getting closer,
As the tide climbs up the beach.
And my fingers are getting tired,
Of playing the songs to relieve,
The pain and the stain,
Life’s love lessons and refrain,
In Jersey, In Jersey.

Shoreline in Jersey,
With shells at my feet.
Searching for a meal now,
As the water retreats,
Out of the darkness and the cold,
Digging the daggers out of my soul,
Goodbye New Jersey, goodbye New Jersey.
