Saltwater runs in my blood
You can taste traces on my skin
My heart is guided by the moon
The tides rise and fall again
All my thoughts run in a current
They have crashed on distant sands
And every love that’s lived in me
Still haunts me with demands
I have depths of life and depths of dark
The memories of sailors drowned
I have echoes of all the ships
That I have run aground
And shores I longed for with all my heart
That I was not meant to keep
And dreams that only rose in me
When I was fast asleep
I am the wave, the hurricane,
I am all worlds in one drop
The truth is I can share my tales
The truth is I won’t stop.
