I know that I am a wonder to you,
Hailing from someplace unknown,
I stand on beaches that seas rush to,
With sand on my feet to show.
O hail the sky,
That measures up to me,
And treats me as the beautiful one,
A woman am I,
Distrusting you see,
Of the camouflage that you set at dusk.
I stand with colors all pink in shade,
And somewhere between it see red,
The reflection I create,
With the dusk and the grey,
I am the beautiful one instead.
I stand all alone watched by the sun’s glow,
And I dance to the tune of a seaside lullaby,
I trip and I fall and see the world so small,
In my fingertips, I grip it all.
So, dance a lullaby and see how I try,
To create a beautiful slide,
Of the picture of me,
And that would be,
A beautiful woman at sundown.
