Who Really Cares

Sea And Sand

Janis Ian

Goodbye to the sea and sand
and my only man, goodbye
And why should I take your hand
when you've left me here to die
I don't know why

Buy me a silver lion's tail
to wrap around my eyes
Why am I standing here
watching you fail
when I've spent all my life
all my dreams
So goodbye

From my window grows a tree
All the people come to stare at me
Don't you see?
I've got to leave today,
or I never will be gone
To leave today
or I never will come
to the sea and the sun again

Goodbye to the sea and sand
and my only man, goodbye
And why should I take your hand
when you've left me here to die
I don't know why

Buy me a silver lion's tail
to wrap around my eyes
And why am I standing here
watching you fail
when I've spent all my life,
all my dreams
So goodbye
