How do the words go?

At home in Bodega Bay in northern California. It is morning

Last night Pandora was playing “A case of you”. Not Joni Mitchell, but Diana Krall, slow and sultry with a hint of sadness. I left a note on the coffee table and went for a walk along the beach with a half drunk glass of wine and thoughts of you. 

There was a chill in the September air, but the sand was still warm and felt good to my feet. The ocean stretched out and the full moon reflected off the waves. The only sound was the wind and the waves and the music in my head. 

How do the words go? 

“Just before our love got lost you said 
I am as constant as a northern star 
and I said Constantly in the darkness 
Where's that at…?” 

If you want me, I'll be at the beach 
Until the song ends and the moon drops below the waves. 
Then, what am I to think?
