1. Caspian Tern

From the recording Erso


I won’t capture, I won’t promise
Your kayak’s big enough for the both of us
We’re the last ones to see the flight of the heron
But the lamp does’t work unless we sing it a love song

Simplify joy to be swimming in moonlight
And loneliness must be the Caspian Tern’s flight
Then we must breathe parallel, calm as the morning
To get ourselves far as we can from the shoreline

The waters rise to alter our memory
Soon we’ll be closed in an iceberg-like symphony
I’m glad I’m with you so we can sing as the world ends
They’d be proud of the way our souls crack but our hearts bend
