about

I wrote this song for a woman who is now one of my best friends and who was once my lover. We share an incredible love of the ocean and have had so much fun frolicking in it together. I wanted to write a song which celebrated the joy of our times together as lovers and friends…and this is it. It’s a fairy-tale about two people who love one another and the ocean so much that they decide to go and live in the sea together. This one is for Hanli.

lyrics

Hold fast to me dear as I lie fast asleep
We hold fast to the mast and sink to the deep
The world passes by in aquatic displays
See the fish in their curious ways

This may just be my lucid daydream sea song

Though we sail under seas I ask not for despair
Every adventure has a price we must pay
Seems we’ve sunk down as the others grew up
Now our ceiling’s their floor and I praise our good fortune

I look up at the night sky, you tell stories to me
Of all that was when air we breathed
When we walked over land though we dreamed
Under sea

This may just be my lucid daydream sea song
Now my best friend’s a sea urchin of bright shiny green
Apart, that is, from you girl you know what I mean
At last in love we left all the lost ones behind
I breathe in the green I see reflect in your eyes

I look up at the night sky, you tell stories to me
Of all that was when air we breathed
When we walked over land though we dreamed
Under sea

On shipwrecks below are the places we grow
Delicate vines, see them sway to and fro
Yes, life is fine deep in the brine
The salt on my tongue lets me know you are mine

I look up at the night sky, you tell stories to me
Of all that was when air we breathed
When we walked over land though we dreamed
Oh we dream
Under sea

This may just be my lucid daydream sea song
This may just be my lucid daydream sea song
