Sandy Cove Lyrics

Out by Sandy Cove
I thought about my Life
A lot about my children
And a lot about my wife

I’m on my Mom’s old accordion( ??)
And all the other things I’ve lost
Like grandpa’s ship in a bottle
And I wondered what it would costs
Cause I would pay a sultan's ransom
If only I could place
The ship back in the bottle
Or see my mother's face

Out by Sandy Cove
I started on a song
I knew I’d never finish
Cause nobody lives that long
So many things unfinished
Before they are begun
Like grandpa’s ship in a bottle
We’ll sail out to oblivion
And where does all the love we lose go
It seems like such a crime
It’s like grandpa’s ship in a bottle
It disappears in time

If I could do no work
There’d be some changes made
I’d paint with vibrant colors
I’d stay out of the shade
I’d make everybody happy
With the lessons I have learned
I might not have found the joy in life
But I’d leave not stone unturned
I’d leave not stone unturned

Out by Sandy Cove
Just a mile beyond the strand
There stands an ancient tower
On a rocky point of land
I feel just like that tower
Like nothing lives inside of me
And I don’t know why I’m empty
Or why I’m standing by this sea
But I got cracks in all my mortar
I got holes in all my bricks
And it’s like grandpa’s ship in a bottle
It’s something I can’t fix
All my fancy tricks
It’s something I can’t fix
