Life Vest

lyrics

We are born on the crest of a wave
and we have crashed before this
Bodies beaten down by the ocean
Eyes burning with the salt of emotion

Slow, slow the russet moon worked us o'er
Like tidal flow

Oh, God have mercy on me
Sometimes I'm strong
But sometimes I'm weak

I recklessly unzipped my chest
Pulled all the contents out of my life vest
I was hoping you might be impressed or at least
Take what you loved and then sew up my breast

Slow, slow the russet moon worked us o'er
Like tidal flow

Oh, God have mercy on me
Sometimes I'm strong
But sometimes I'm weak

The mast was of good timber
But the wood began to splinter

Slow, slow the russet moon worked us o'er
Like tidal flow

Oh, God have mercy on me
Sometimes I'm strong
But sometimes I'm weak
