Today, if I Painted the Sea

This song was born on a beautiful sunny day walking by the sea where I live in East Lothian. I couldn’t quite believe the colour of blue that day and the words formed as I walked.


Dreamy, soft, slow


SATB Bass with rhythmic no-words backing. Alto tune.
2 verses and chorus.

Today, if I painted the sea
No-one would believe the blue
Of the colour I’d choose
Chorus: I am lost and I am found in blue
And I want to lie where the sea
Touches the sky
That oyster shell crack in the bus
Where silver shines through
Chorus: I am lost and I am found in blue
