Lyrics

SHE HIT THE COAST TO HAVE SOME FUN AND DRINK SOME BEER
MAYBE FIND MISTER RIGHT BUT PROBABLY MISTER RIGHT HERE
OH HE JUST WANTS TO HAVE HIM SOME FUN
BUT THE CLOUDS THEY SOON BLOCK OUT THE SUN
JUST LIKE THE BIRD ON THE SAND SHE TAKES WHATEVER SHE CAN
NEVER LOOKING BEYOND HER OWN TEARS

AND LIKE THE SANDPIPER SEARCHING THE SHORE
ALWAYS HUNTING BUT NOT SURE WHAT FOR
OH, SHE WON'T WET HER FEET THOUGH HER HUNGER RUNS DEEP
SHE'S AFRAID TO LOOK FURTHER FOR MORE

HE PUTS HIS TIME IN AT THE PLANT FIVE DAYS A WEEK
HOPING MAGIC BRINGS THE JOB AND FORTUNE THAT HE SEEKS
BUT HE'S BUILDING A FENCE AROUND HIS DREAMS
NEVER OPENING THE GATE TO LOOK AND SEE
THE HUNDRED OTHER WAYS TO RAISE HIS SPIRITS AND HIS PAY
HE'S AFRAID TO TEST THE WATERS TO BE FREE

CHORUS

WE ALL WANT HAPPINESS, TRUE LOVE AND PEACE OF MIND
BUT SANDPIPER WAYS CAUSE US TO LEAVE SO MUCH BEHIND
IF WE'D LOOK A LITTLE FARTHER FROM THE SHORE
THEN WE WOULD SURELY FIND THERE'S SO MUCH MORE
THAN JUST THE MORSELS WE SAVE WHEN WE SHY BACK FROM THE WAVES
BENEATH THE SURFACE IS WHAT WE SEEK TO FIND

CHORUS
