On The Sea

lyrics

In my mind, I held you softly
On the sea and the white mist
It was heavy and salty on your lips
You steered solemnly on like this

In my mind, I felt you turning
On the sky of black and grey
Whitened knuckles gripping on the wheel
You steered solemnly on away

How dare you drop your anchor when you’re so damn close to home?
You turn and light the lantern and illuminate the boat
Wring out all your clothing, put the warmth into your bones
Into your bones

And heal
It’s wild on the surface but beneath the water’s still x 2

In my mind, I heard you breathing
And the swell breathed back at you
And it reared up like horses from the deep
You steered solemnly on right through

How dare you drop your anchor when you’re so damn close to home?
You turn and light the lantern and illuminate the boat
Wring out all your clothing, put the warmth into your bones
Into your bones

And heal
It’s wild on the surface but beneath the water’s still x 2
