​Shores Of India

This song is by The Gentle Storm and appears on the album The Diary (2015).

"Dear diary,

After several unbearable months of silence, I now hold in my hands a precious letter from my dearest Joseph. He's safely reached India!
The exotic land he describes in his letter sounds magnificent - colorful, mystical and beautiful beyond imagining.
What must it be like to experience such wonders? I wish I could be there with him, but that is not to be.
Instead I find comfort in knowing that half a world away, he held this same bit of paper in his hand."

Travelling the world, port to port
Enriches my life, horizon in sight

I have seen wonders to last for a lifetime
The world here is mystic and new
The markets and colors, incense and scholars
Flavors and scents ever pure

Words that you sent, sweet Susanne
Ignite in my heart a brand new start

The darkest of skies make the brightest of stars shine
I see you and me
The dawn of an era, the birth of a new day
This constellation I see

And as the moon's gazing down
On the shores of India
I am calling out your name
May the tides bear my words

Waves crashing down
On the shores of India
Did you summon them to me
Have they come to take me home

Salt water dew, see me through
Show me the way, lead me to you

Colors and spices, rich and enticing
This land captures me
Tropical thunders, musical wonders
The Arabian Sea

And as the moon's gazing down
On the shores of India
I am calling out your name
May the tides bear my words

Waves crashing down
On the shores of India
Did you summon them to me
Have they come to take me home

I have seen wonders, guide me into your arms

And as the moon's gazing down
On the shores of India
I am calling out your name
May the tides bear my words

Waves crashing down
On the shores of India
Did you summon them to me
Have they come to take me home

And as the moon's gazing down
On the shores of India
I am calling out your name
May the tides bear my words

Waves crashing down
On the shores of India
Did you summon them to me
Have they come to take me home

I sent you the waves
Did they come here
To take you home to me

India, pearl of the east
Bless the holy waters
And protect me on my
Journey back to her
