sleeping at last – watermark lyrics



you were carved out of the sea
watermarked by your ancestry
in a tug of war between the tide and me
what felt like loss was a victory
cause you were swept ash-r- like bottles holding prayers

you were carved out of the earth
safe and sound in your second birth
gravity has tied your ankle to the sh-r-
as a lighthouse tamed the endless ocean war

against the calming light our silhouettes are changing shape
the stories you’ve been told have made you brave

such inheritance was formed within the sand
like the sh-lls you gather in the safety of your hands
dive in with your eyes closed
for the life you were born to claim
and the water will be paralyzed
by the courage you contain
and the flutter of your earnest heart
it will fill the silent seas
and all will be restored in your memory

- sleeping at last
