Lyrics


The beach was empty that July
Dark thunder clouds filled the sky
An invisible sun was starving to shine
Then she lifted herself from the sea
Water dripped from her body
She rose from the foam like a Venus to me
In the dunes at a distance
I dared to watch her dance
She caught my eye

Innocence was swarming over my head
Tiny tornadoes whipped through my nerves
Wish I said,

Let's get it while we're young, girl
Shine under the storm, girl
We'll dance together
In this hot summer rain
Let's get it while we're young, girl
Shine under the storm, girl
We'll dance together
In this hot summer rain

She let me glance at her desire
Caught a glimpse of her burning fire
Fingers feeling her flower flesh, wet so divine
The epiphanies poppin' in my soul
Played a lovers' concerto
And turned in my heart like a mandala
She chased the shame from my sin
Although we tasted the same salt wind
Love unrequited dies

Innocence was swarming over my head
Tiny tornadoes whipped through my nerves
Wish I said,

Let's get it while we're young, girl
Shine under the storm, girl
We'll dance together
In this hot summer rain
Let's get it while we're young, girl
Shine under the storm, girl
We'll dance together
In this hot summer rain

I'd love to learn what life's about
The ocean crushes sand
I live to learn what love's about
All alone with my heart in my hand 

Let's get it while we're young, girl
Shine under the storm, girl
We'll dance together
In this hot summer rain
