Galveston (Lyrics)

We woke up at the sea
With truth in our mouths
With salt in our teeth and in our nose
We sang to the sun

“Talk to the waves, how they are beautiful and then gone”

We tasted the sky
We are bone and breeze and undertow
Eclipsed by the light, my guilt is gone
Cast from the shore

“Talk to the waves, how they are beautiful and then gone”

With hope we spoke the dark down from the sky
With love we peeled the fear from both our eyes
Through the space between the stars, we still smile

We’ve found ourselves breaking on the shore
And all these sad songs we’ll sing no more.
And this golden dawn we sink into is brilliant.

We are beautiful
