One day while bathin' in the sea
My talkin' dolphin spoke to me
He spoke to me in symphony
From freedom's peace beneath the sea
He looked to me, eyes full of love
Said, "Yes, we live behind the sun"

Behind the sun, behind the sun
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, behind the sun
The sun goes up and the sun gets down
But like the heart of the sun, my heart
Continues to pound behind the sun

Now, while I shower in the rain
I watch my dolphin swim away
The one who listens to the surf
Can feel the pulse beat of the earth
And like my dolphin swims so free
The sun does swim into the sea

Behind the sun, behind the sun
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, behind the sun
Behind the sun

An island flyin' through the sky
One day your son might ask you why
And if your son should be a girl
She too might ask you of this world
The sun shines sweet upon your beach
And yes, my dolphin loves to teach

Behind the sun, behind the sun
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, behind the sun
The sun goes up and the sun gets down
But like the heart of the sun, my heart
Continues to pound behind the sun
