Take me away gray wilting mind and let me again feel young and free
Take me away to that piece of paradise nestled next to the sea
No snow beneath my feet, no frosty flurry to bite my face
Take me away gray wilting mind, to another season and place
I no longer find bliss in the first snow or the hunter's moon on the rise
I covet for the kiss of the sun and the taste of tea on ice
Let me feel the heat of the sand and smell the green trees
Of all the places God created that is where I want to be
An empty beach with gentle waves licking the shore
Take me away and I won't ask for anything more.
Take me away gray wilting mind and let me again feel young and free.
