  • I've crossed deserts for miles
    Swam water for time
    Searching places to find
    A piece of something to call mine (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 want to be
    Is the place I can call mine (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

    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 want to 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 out of reach)
    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 move it, I feel it
    I'm coming, not drowning
    I move it, 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 Writer/s: Shaznay Lewis, Susannah Melvoin, William Orbit

  • Paul Marlo from Perthwhat do u mean the movie 'the beach' is a drug story set in thailand. the only drug part in this movie is two scenes where they pass through a marijuana crop. does this make it a "drug story filmed in thailand?"
