lyrics

verse
I caught a boat and learned the names of the waters
To keep us safe from the sea
Discovered the shore through the shades of night
to keep us safe from the sea
And learned [or ‘ignored’] the distance from star to stern
to keep us safe from the sea
And threaded a line through the eye of the storm
to keep us safe from the sea
And tied the line to of back of behind
to keep us safe from the sea [or ‘to keep you here with me’]


chorus
And we dealt out the deck as we sailed
over bones across jaws
And stared at our hands
And our drinks they spilt as we drifted
Between ports and between laws (over shores across jaws...)
with the pity of man
broadcast from land
broadcast from land…



chorus
And it came howling to me
A sense that a seagull
It came howling to me
A new sense of safety
