As I look up at the sky so blue
and look down at the ocean so green
I find the love I have for you
the one you haven't seen.
Waves splash and splash on the shore
the sand looks soft and brown
I ask myself if there's a cure
for this happy face turned upside-down.
The reason why I cannot smile
is because of all my doubts and fears:
Is it really that worthwhile?
Should I wipe away the tears?
The ocean looks so beautiful and peaceful
like the seashells on the ground....
...at this moment I feel so wonderful
because now my frown is upside down.
As I had listened to the shattering waters
it sounded like someone saying Hush.
And reminded me that this person loves me
and always will,
I also love him, don't you see my love for
him he'll always feel?
