lyrics

You held a lifeline, to a boat by the sea,
Tethered her to dock of mortality.

Now that she’s sailing, now she broke free,
Curl it up into circles. Leave your lifeline on the dock in peace.

You held a lifeline, your boat longed for the waves.
You reached your furthest on dark and dismal days.

Now that she’s sailing, now she broke free,
Curl it up into circles- leave your lifeline on the dock in peace.

Grieving for the things that were,
You mourn the things that weren’t,
Reeling from the lessons learnt.
Now, when I look into your eyes,
I see her.

You kept your promise, to a boat at bay,
Weathered through the storms faithfully each day.

She’s on the ocean. Her sails so full and free.
Curl it up into circles- leave your lifeline on the dock in peace.
Leave your lifeline- her lifetime complete.
