Fountain Of Youth
( Tommy Mondello )


Like a magic potion... an elixir of life
  Wave upon wave anointing you with it's healing powers
Tiny white caps rolling in... such a soothing sight
     Then mesmerized completely by a symphony of numbing sound
        For hours and hours---

Inhale so deep... salted lungs now filled with pure exhilaration
  Followed by a cleansing exhale
     Ridding you of all your inhibitions
        And heightning your love for everything under the sun
Awakening a newfound trust
  For something that's been lost for so many years
     That strength within you to live your life without compromise
        And leaving behind everyone else's visions of what you should have become---

Perpetual liquid lapping upon the land
  It's a never ending luxury... this fountain of youth
Falling under it's calming spell is such a simple and easy thing to do
  Watching anxiety and worrysome fears run for cover
     It's what you've come for... a starting over
        A revitalized confidence has given you proof---

Soft sunlight upon your skin
  And a healthy breeze combine to complete this wonderous scene
     While white caps continue to pour in
        Then embrace the waiting shore
You stand there in amazement... you stand in awe... of such a life giving force
  Now fully cleasnsed of harmful doubts
     Truly feeling stronger... more bolder than ever before---

Aligning planets... rolling tides
  Answers are found within your motion
Sustaining life... a sanity truly unbroken
  It's a healing source in every way
     These many miles of sand
        And endless amounts of churning ocean---

---Forever hold your breath on the outerbanks and be witness to the gift---
