Lyrics

Sailor’s song

The sea is my pillow
My blanket is the tide
I wait to go under
I wait to curl inside
You move the dark water
Anointing my tongue

I just want to die in your arms...

I left my mother crying
Enlisted in the corps
We took the boats out early
We worked the southern shore
We rode the angry waters
Worked blood into the oar

I was looking for a lighthouse
But I can’t use it anymore

You laugh at my affliction
You flood my memory
I offer up the music
Strung between two thieves
Take my inner feelings
Take my talent to deceive

I just want to die in your arms...

The sea is my pillow
My blanket is the tide
