The Seal Wife

from by Juliana Finch

lyrics

She says she'll marry a boy who can sing
the ocean to her door
A sailor, he'll be her everything
She'll never ask for more

But the sea, it has its own will
and the human heart has rooms to fill
A cry coming from the ocean floor
says leave the shore...

She says he carries a storm in his eyes
dark as a western wave
Salt air in every kiss and sigh
He keeps her close and safe

But the sea, it has its own will
and the human heart has rooms to fill
A cry coming from the ocean floor
says leave the shore...

Living through another skin
Can't remember who you are or where you've been
I'm calling you, I'm calling you, I'm calling you
Dive in...

He says he married a girl of the sea
She left him with the tide
Her voice calls to him patiently
across a great divide

The sea has its own will
and the human heart has rooms to fill
A cry coming from the ocean floor
says leave the shore...
Leave the shore
