LIVE ONLY LYRICS (ERIC ANDERSEN)

Sea of tears   (Eric Andersen)  (live 1987)

Eyes on the horizon
seasons round like the moon
in a circle goes the sun
the river and the rain
we are red like our blood
red river flows
now the circle is closing
in the middle a tree grows

but blue waters surround me
you carried me somewhere
still I知 drowning in
a sea of tears

the land is dry and thirsty
the rivers cry out for shade
the sun beats down hard as a drum
eating up the day
who was I looking for
when there was no one there
why was I laughing
there was no one there to hear

but blue waters surround me
you carried me somewhere
but still I知 drowning in
a sea of tears
I知 drowning in
a sea of tears

now the eagle is circling
the river is on fire
the drums are beating slowly and
the eagle痴 climbing higher
now the circle痴 closing on
those never meant to burn

blue waters surround me
you carried me somewhere
still I知 drowning in
a sea of tears
I知 drowning in
a sea of tears

blinding white white as the wind
black like the earth
the yellow shines in the sun
we are the proud ones
but look what have we done
now the circle is closing
in the middle we are one
who am I looking for
and there is no one there
why am I laughing
there痴 no one there to hear

blue waters surround me
you carried me somewhere
still I知 drowning in
a sea of tears
I知 drowning in
a sea of tears
