The lonely sea, the lonely sea
It never stops for you or me
It moves along from day to day
That’s why my love, that’s why my love
You’ll never stay
I like to think of poor Brian Wilson, confused teenager in his infamous room he told his secrets to, writing this song. This is off the second Beach Boys album from 1963, Surfin’ USA.
Fast-forward 13 years later, when Brian was having some serious hangtime in an ornate giant bed and eating a lot. “Still I Dream of It” was written during his three-year self-imposed isolation, when if he wasn’t in bed, he was in the giant sandbox next to it.
