Story

"Footprints to the Sea" was inspired by a trip to Mexico with my family. A friend sold us a week's timeshare in paradise. Right on the beach in Peurta Villarta where we spent the afternoons sipping Margaritas on the beach.

There was a footpath to the ocean we took every day. It helped inspire this song. So did many other things...

Lyrics

Hello sun, goodbye rain

Water racing through the drain

Drenched through clothes and down to skin

Warm sun, where have you been?

Bright blue day and starry sky

Now everything dry

Morning dawns the window pane

Such a sweet refrain

 

Warm wind chase away the cold

Change of seasons don’t get old

Only we will waiting here

When will that ship appear?

Budding blooms along the road

Driving under heavy load

Warm wind chase away the cold…

Bring some silver, bring us gold

 

Adios, down the sandy path away I go

Find me, follow footprints to the sea

 

It don’t matter where you’ve been

Every sail needs a little wind

Strong enough to take you there

Jump aboard now if you dare

Sailing high on the high seas

Until they come for me

Lose the blues come feel the sun

Shining down on everyone

 

Adios, down the sandy path away I go

Find me, follow footprints to the sea

One star, no matter where you are

Find me, follow footprints to the sea

 

Shot from space and into town

Set ‘em up, knock ‘em down

One by one by one we go

At every door a cameo

Sandaled feet and summer clothes

With the weather we will go

Tuck my hair into my hat

And like summer gone like that

 

Adios, down the sandy path away I go

Find me, follow footprints to the sea

Bright star, no matter where you are

Find me, follow footprints to the sea
