This song is by The Hollies and appears on the album Butterfly (1967) and on the compilation album Special Collection (1997).

When sand's close at hand
And the sea is touching me
I feel much happier
Than I've ever felt
And a long time goes by
And I'm floating in the sky
And I wish you could be
Wish you could be here

And if you're free, follow me
Throw a pebble in my sea
The sun will wrap you up
In a pool of gold, and lights in the night
Reaching neon waves of sight

But
I wish you could be
Wish you could be
Wish you could be here

The sun, the sand, the sea are waiting
On the corner
Take a trip out here
Hustle, bustle, shove and fuss
Will greet you if you stay there
I'm without a care

Fresh fruit and sea fish
Are in abundance here
But they don't allow
The natives at your door
Selling booze
Smuggled from another shore

And
I wish you could be
Wish you could be
Wish you could be here

The sun, the sand, the sea are waiting
On the corner
Take a trip out here
Hustle, bustle, shove and fuss
Will greet you if you stay there
I'm without a care

Fresh fruit and sea fish
Are in abundance here
But they don't allow
The natives at your door
Selling booze
Smuggled from another shore

I wish you could be
Wish you could be
Wish you could be here

Postcard, postcard, postcard.
