lyrics

A storm stalks the shore
I push past our battened door
I made sure to tuck them in
before setting out to where we had begun

The gills break my skin
But it’s more then that, I feel a change within
As I plunge off the wharf
and I sing your name over that monstrous surf

And that picture stays with me
of your boat barely keeping you from that raging sea
I could trumpet this fact
instead I leap

You were nearly wrecked my love
You were nearly taken from what was a home to me
How can I keep you from the sea
and avert myself from smiling at irony?

Your blunt nosed vessel tilts
Cages vault off deck
and shatter against a swell
You could only grip the helm
Hesitate - there is no sound
There is no land

I hear you roar hardily
as my bowed body strains to keep you from the sea
I could trumpet this fact
instead I leap

You were nearly wrecked my love
You were nearly taken from what was a home to me
How can I keep you from the sea
and avert myself from smiling at irony?

Sarah Eide Chicago, Illinois

A classical background coupled with a love for folk and roots music has led Sarah to writing songs that are daring yet familiar.

Her songs dare question aloud spirituality, morality, relationships, societal standards, and where the line lies between right and wrong. ... more
