This song is a dedication to Sean, Amy and Jet - a memory of a sunny escape and an ode to forever love...


Adrift the shore with the high tide beating down
On us: I'm sure
Of our lover's escapade
In this winter wonderland where each day's summer paradise
My wife, I know that you're a package deal
And this deal I seal

Surrounded by all that matters
Reality on island time

And if I falter
Forgive me
These words I do say easily
I do, I will never leave

And there you stand across from me
I love you, faithfully
I am at your mercy for trusting me with you and him
And I will love your child as my own
He is my own

Although I've had one before
I now know my family

And if you falter
I will forgive you
These words never came so easily
I do, I will never...

Leave the past where it belongs, in the past
And set a course for our future
In this brief blink of time
The planets have aligned
And life is finally made from my love

Surrounded by all that matters
Love on our time

And if we falter
I will forgive us
These vows, a promise spoken silently
I do, I will never leave

Even when we're grey and old
And trailing off into the stories
Written in our faces
We'll still have Waikiki
