lyrics

Walking a path down to the sea
Past thrift and iris bright
On a chimney stack a tiny bird with a big voice
O’ what a voice
As salt air pinches skin

Where mountains touch the waters edge
Pushed up from years of brutal force
Steep cliffs climb and cut the line
Where salt air pinches skin

Time said goodbye and left us standing
Stock still
And restless
Watching the seasons change
Watching, and waiting

I walk a path down to the sea
Past thrift and iris bright
On a chimney stack a tiny bird with a big voice
O’ what a voice
Where salt air pinches skin
