Sea Song

unreleased - 2011

"waiting for the ships to come in,

sitting and stitching by sea

every sun down for the man that I love.

for he who showed me what life could be.

our beautiful house has run down

as his joints and his spirits have too

but I must go on, for the man that I love.

for he who showed me what I could be.

The dirt's on my hands

from war-ravaged lands

There's still something in nothing it seems

Working the ground

from sun up to sun down

until we can return to the sea

brushing the grass where I've scattered

all of my love and his ashes

hills pale and dry, what tears I've cried

for the man who brought life to me.  

Oh how I've grown

and boundaries restored

I've wrestled the strongest of men

When my knuckles are bare

and the end is clear

I'll be stitiching by the sea shore

Still waiting for him to come home

Just waiting for him to come home"
