LYRIC:

Let's spend the evening with the ocean
And watch the surf go mad beneath the moon
And in view of that commotion
Remember I'll be back here very soon

I just never had a notion
That such an easy time could ever be
          Is it just the way you are?
          Is it just the way you are?
          Or is it just the way you are with me?

I won't be gone forever
Next time the full moon is shining on the sea
I'll be here, and you will never
Believe someone could cherish you like me

I'm not trying to be clever
But it's destined, there's nothing you can do
          And it's not the way I am
          It's not the way I am
          It's just the way I am with you

          Listen to the breakers
          The movers and the shakers
          See the way the gulls fly through the light
          Out of the dark night

So we didn't sleep a minute
And now the early morning burns away
And I'd rather not be in it
I do not want to know about today

Yes I'd rather not begin it
My journey to the far side of the sea
          Is it just the way you are?
          Is it just the way you are?
          Or is it just the way you are with me?

          Is it just the way you are?
          Is it just the way you are?
          Or is it just the way you are with me?
