Eskimo Joe – From the Sea (album: A Song Is a City 2004)

This song is by the Aussie rock band Eskimo Joe. They are pretty awesome. We’ve seen them perform in the first Live Earth concert in Sydney back in 2007. They were awesome! My hubby got us this album and I’ve enjoyed listening to it very much. This is one of their classics.

Speaking of the sea - I love it very much. I’m lucky enough to stare at the ocean everyday from my balcony, once in the morning when I wake up and again when I come home after work, If I'm lucky I get to watch a beautiful rainbow and when I wake up  early enough I watch  the sunrise. This weekend a friend came over to visit us from Sydney. We all went to the beach. When we got to the beach, we saw a crowd of people gathering around a guy that caught a brown snake. We decided to get away from the snake area and sit closer to the sea. While walking on the sand, we stepped on thousands of the bloody black beetles that covered all of Qld in the last couple of days. Even after all this terrifying encounter with all my biggest enemies (snakes and bugs – hate them with passion!) I’ve managed to enjoy a relaxing hour with my hubby and our friend by lying down next to the wonderful sea. Check out this beautiful sea song...

What’s this song about?
Here is a quote from songmeaning website:
To quote the fantastic talented Kav (the singer/songwriter), It’s when you wake up... [and] youve just got the weight of the world on your shoulders. No matter what you do youre looking at everything through a big foggy cloud."
