lyrics

We walked out onto the tidelands
but all you saw was the plain gray sand
I told you baby, there is life beneath
I took your hand and you clenched your teeth

I turned over a rock and cut my hand
my blood fell on the eggs in the sand
you did startle, at the life you saw below
I said that in time it will grow

For thats the reason, the reason that we're damned
I see the life, but you just see the sand
I'd have bled for you both inside and out
to show you love for which you have no doubt
to show you love for which you have no doubt

We walked along as I told you all the names
of the living things buried deep beneath the grains
you looked at me as though I was from some other place
I took your hand and saw your body tense

So next time you walk the tidelands
with some other woman, with cleaner hands
make sure to keep your heart far away
Don't let it ruin you as it did today
Don't let it ruin you as it does today
