A Shipwreck Song

lyrics

A mariner's moon lights up the line of her face
A moment too soon, she lies with her back broken
And always the wonder of worried-sick mothers, we'll be
But they'll find no comfort, we're damned to the lonely deep
And I'll remember you full of grace
When I see you shine below the surface
Should I wait on your light to guide me away?
Or will you turn your back on all your promises?
Oh, and over rolling seas we'll go
Without a constellation to map our way home
As farther out we fall to sediment and siren-song
Where the albatross waits, motionless
So hurry across the nautical realm to me
And through a spyglass I'll look to its meridian
And what could be better than wandering out on the seas?
Where, forever, my heart goes sailing
And I'll remember you full of grace
When I see you shine below the surface
Should I wait on your light to guide me away?
Or will you turn your back on all your promises?
We see you shining, so long
And I'll wait for you, always
Oh, then something draws her countenance
Revealed in the tidal movements...
