about

This song was written in a hammock in Thailand. It was the first time I had ever been anywhere tropical and was completely mesmerized by the ocean. It was so different from the West Coast I was familiar with, but also totally familiar

lyrics

The sea she flows right through me.
So many shade of blue.
I want to bottle them up so I can take them home.
Sleep with them under my pillow.

Waves reflect the clouds,
while the clouds they cast their shadows.
She laps upon the oatmeal sand reaching out to me
and drawing me near, then falling back.

Leaving her silvery kisses in a line.
Slowly evaporating and slowly sinking
'till she beckons once more.
All this in a moment. Oooohhhhh.

My love affair with the ocean,
well its' waves from far away
Destined to fall upon my shores.
She sings me a song so soft it lays beneath.

The space between my thoughts
whispers advice already within.
The lesson that she holds in her salty belly,
then falling back.

Leaving her silvery kisses in a line.
Slowly evaporating and slowly sinking
'till she beckons once more.
All this in a moment. A moment.

With the ebb and flow.
Give and take.
Forwards and backwards.
The sea she flows right through me.
