Pure Shores cover
I've crossed deserts for miles
Swam water for time
Searching places to find a piece of something to call mine
(I'm coming)
(I'm coming)
A piece of something to call mine
(I'm coming)
(Coming closer to you)

Ran along many moors
Walked through many doors
The place where I wanna be is the place I can call mine
(I'm coming)
(I'm coming)
Is the place I can call mine
(I'm coming)
(Coming closer to you)

I'm moving
I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you my dear out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming
Not drowning
Swimming closer to you

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Never been here before
I'm intrigued
I'm unsure
I'm searching for more
I've got something that's all mine
I've got something that's all mine

Take me somewhere I can breathe
I've got so much to see
This is where I wanna be in a place I can call mine
In a place I can call mine

I'm moving
I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you my dear out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming
Not drowning
Swimming closer to you

Moving
Coming
Can you hear what I hear
(Hear it on the wind)
I hear it calling you
Swimming closer to you

Many faces I have seen
Many places I have been
Walked the deserts
Swam the shores
(Coming closer to you)

Many faces I have known
Many ways in which I've grown
Moving closer on my own
(Coming closer to you)

I'm moving
I feel it
I'm coming
Not drowning

I'm moving
I feel it
I'm coming
Not drowning

I'm moving
I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you my dear out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming
Not drowning
Swimming closer to you
(Take me to my beach)

I'm moving
I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you my dear out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming
Not drowning
Swimming closer to you
(Take me to my beach)

I'm moving
I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you my dear out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming
Not drowning
Swimming closer to you
(Take me to my beach)
