lyrics

Married to the Sea
© 2011

She came
From the mountains
Eyes like the bottom of a glass
She said
I miss my mother
But I can never
Go back never no never never never never

There’s something there
In the gaps
Something there
In the cracks

I’ll tell you now
I’m married to the sea
I’ll tell you now
I’m married to the sea

She danced
Like a wild thing
Clothes peeled off like orange skin
She said
My fingers seem to know you
Isn’t that
The strangest thing? The strangest thing?

Driftwood
Seaweed
Sloe black
Blue backed
Fishing boat
Bobbing sea and
Stormy nights and
Salty dreams its the
Glitter on the water
Glitter on the water
Glitter on the water
Glitter on the water

I’ll tell you now
I’m married to the sea
