Ray LaMontagne - To The Sea Lyrics




I'll be waiting in the car
Don't forget the camera
If you wouldn't mind could you find my yellow shoes
I think they're under the stairs
Fa la la la la fa la

Through the hills and country side
Waving at the passers by
There's old tom in a coat and tie looking every ounce
The prince
He's [?] against the fence
Fa la la la la fa la
Fa la la la la fa la

We drove to the sea
Where the water is green
And the clouds and the blue through the shadows of me and you
The shells that we found in the sand
The moment we held in our hands
You were making me laugh, it was easier then, when
But then again

I'll be dozing over there
Cozy in my folding chair
Watching seabirds in the air as they circle the sun
[?] they suffer no one
Fa la la la la fa la
Fa la la la la fa la

We drove to the sea
Where the water is green
And the clouds and the blue through the shadows of me and you
The shells that we found in the sand
The moment we held in our hands
You were making me smile, it was easier then, when
But then again

All of the questions in my head
I'll paint them red
Put them to bed
All of the voices in my mind
Hurt and unkind
Leave them behind
Leave them behind

As we drove to the sea
And the water is green
And the clouds and the blue through the shadows of me and you
The shells that we found in the sand
The moment we held in our hands
You were making me laugh, it was easier then, when
But then again

I'll be waiting in the car
Don't forget the camera
If you wouldn't mind could you find my yellow shoes
I think they're under the stairs
Fa la la la la fa la
Fa la la la la fa la
Fa la la la la fa la
Fa la la la la fa la

Ray LaMontagne To The Sea Comments

    Omg so amazing! I can´t believe that I only now discovered Ray LaMontagne. Every track I heard so far was beautiful in all ways! First song I heard was "empty" and I kind of assumed a black woman was the leadsinger. and then I realised it was a white man singing. So much soul, so much love, so sensitive! I am so addicted to your music! Thank you! and forgive me that it took me so long to find you! Eternal love from Berlin! :)

    Absolutely adore this piece of genius ♥️

  3. Ryan Larsen

    4:18-4:35 could have really used some didgeridoo though... lol

  4. Ivan. D

    Dis was on Abercrombie and Fitchs playlist

  5. Bill Shane

    Another great f***ing tune from a man I'm about to start referring to as the "Master." My God, he has so many tunes that just blow me out of the water or maybe I should say to the sea. Thank you Ray.

    The fuzzy acoustic intro reminds me of Nick Drake!

    Phil mole

    Yes! I was just thinking the same thing.

    The lyrics have a Simon and Garfunkel or Belle and Sebastian vibe.
