I saw the tears escape your eyelids,
I felt the stinging on your cheeks,
I knew the blur within your vision,
I heard you cry and I smelt the water.

And I want your salt upon my lips -
Uh-huh, your salt upon my lips;
Yeah, I want to be with you in private,
And kiss your salt onto my lips -
Uh-huh, taste your salt upon my lips.

I saw you come out of the ocean,
I felt the sun shine on your skin,
I knew the tingle through your torso,
I heard the surf and I smelt the water.

And...

I saw the sweat break from your body,
I felt the heat build in your cheeks,
I knew the beating of your big heart,
I heard you sigh and I smelt the water.

And...
