lyrics

the turning moon
and what she pulled
one life away
the waters toward the sky
and the seaweeds' spawn

you were born of the grit
and the marsh
risen like a gentle flag
to cast your prayer
back to the waves, the fire sun

reach out for touch
like a child
reach out like the tendril
of a pea vine

you can hold on to me now

and so we gathered to sing
the leaving songs
to float these leaves down a stream
to mark the harvest

why should i cry
for the time taken?
what was rightfully yours
till your soul awakens

back to the waves, the fire sun

i'll understand it
a little, by and by
feet to the fire
and my eyes up to the sky

the pulling moon
and what she turned
bright hope to ashes
water into wine
for empty glasses

why should i cry
for the time taken?
what was rightfully yours
may our souls awaken

back to the waves, the fire sun
