Salt & Sand

Salt & Sand

Sweetheart, draw your shallow breath While the cloud shadows pass overhead This warm rock makes a pillow for us now

A mattress of sand, the tide is low All that you ever waited, you can let it go Wishing suspends our lives we dwell on what we're owed Paid in kind for ourselves, with ashes for our souls All of the time we spend dwelling on what we're owed

Sweetheart, let the salt sea fill your dreams The sun with the shadows dances it seems Breathe deep the salt taste of the day A curtain of rain falls far away"
