Lyrics

Starfish

Trying to toss the starfish to the sea
Trying to help the starfish to be free
Trying to toss the starfish to the sea
Trying to help the starfish to be free

And lying silent on the sand
I'm longing for your loving hand
To save me from the rising sun
And send me back from whence I've come

For I'm too long upon this beach
Here just beyond the ocean's reach
Help me to sail upon the sea
And to survive, alive and free

Chorus:
I'll dance upon the tide, my friend
For life's a joyous ride
To save but one life in the end
Is to answer all who've cried

And watching you I think with pride
Perhaps this one will turn the tide
Achieve what those who came before
Had not attained, and maybe more

But how can one child be so bold
To think that they could break the mold
And armed with only heart and hand
Attempt to save all left on land

I do not dare to think that I
Could save all those condemned to die
Still, I must try to take a stand
Not sit in silence on the sand

Oh starfish, washed upon the shore
Float far away and live once more
May life and peace your spirit buoy
Your journey filled with hope and joy
