about

Legend has it that If you stand on the stone walled shore of the city of Akka in Israel, and count forty waves while reciting a certain verse, all of your troubles, past and future will be washed away. It was worth a try.

lyrics

Counting waves, counting tears, counting days, counting years
Counting words and ways and loves and lives
Days until that day arrives
When all the things that I have seen
And all the places I have been
Become the road that I am on that lead me to where I belong

Standing on this fortress shore that whispers to me cry no more
Cast your cares and sorrows to the sea - Counting Waves

Counting waves, counting tears, counting days, counting years
Counting time and time that marches on
Dreams I dreamed that now are gone
Wondering what I’m sent here for
So certain that there must be more
Finding strength to bear this load
And finding hope to walk this road

Standing on this fortress shore that whispers to me cry no more
Cast your cares and sorrows to the sea - Counting Waves

“And he that counteth forty waves, while repeating: 'God is Most Great!' -- exalted be He -- God will forgive his sins, both past and future."

Counting waves, counting tears, counting days, counting years
Counting brothers, sisters, children friends
Can I count on love that never ends
Times I’ve asked the question why
A million stars that fill our sky
The one that I saw fall to earth
That sang to me of my rebirth

Standing on this fortress shore that whispers to me cry no more
Cast your cares and sorrows to the sea - Counting Waves
