Sea of Stars

Outtake from Adrian Morse _Bright Smile Black Eyes_

lyrics

I studied the techniques
Spent years and years at sea
Worked under the masters
Learned every ounce of the craft
Then I burned the maps and charts
It’s dead reckoning straight to your heart

I cast the widest net
I embrace the elements
To chase a sea of stars

But all these years at sea
I think they might have hardened me
Still, you give me a kind of joy
Where something sinister should be


A broken compass, a smashed chronometer
A pile of ashes where directions once were
A broken compass, only the light of the moon
To follow you

A place without a place
Floating through time and space
Given over into infinity
Port to port, tack to tack, imagining

I cast the widest net
I kiss the firmament
To chase my sea of stars
