Now that the wave has come and gone
Where are my feelings

Now that the sky has darkened and then lightened
Where are my feelings

Looking at myself in the mirror who is it,
Who is that lopsided stranger
Washing up and down the shore

Now I have lost my right arm
Where are my feelings

Heart flounders in the surf,
The crabs have it but where is it,

Now I am standing on a beach high and dry
Looking for my feelings

Now only one of us remains
Where are my feelings
