When the lights spread a canopy beneath me
The wings of this vessel bear me over the sea
I will wait as the currents complete me
As the tides overwhelm all the settling in me

All the waves will crash into the ocean
Crash into the sea
They will crash their water weight together
They will become a part of me

We are all a collection of stories
We all are weaving our way into peace
And we slide our words into each other and
They wind their way into each other's histories

And when our stories crash into the ocean
Crash into the sea
We will pick our words up together
All sea-salted and clean

When the gap is too much to handle
The ocean wider, our hands out of reach
I will put the pieces together
I will weave your stories into every part of me

And when my heart crashes in ocean
Crashes in the sea
It will land amongst all the other hearts
That will become a part of me

Oh lay your heavy head
Down on the distant
Oh lay your heave head down
And wander no more
