Another Life

Lyrics by Sea At Last

 

by the light of your day in the night where we stay

don’t know how long we’ve been here but I gotta say

I was lost in your eyes, smoke in the sky

where the dawn reaches shadows the colors don’t lie

 

I was lost in your world, through the eyes of a girl

If you sell me your reasons I’ll buy you a pearl

It was fate from the start, I was shot through the heart

In the ages of silence, I’ve sang my part

 

hold me again, here in your arms

grace you’ll find I mean you no harm

 

Someday we’ll ride on the backs of eagles

Fly towards the sun till one of your wing goes

Another life… another life…

When it burns through, you’ll forget the last one

Drift in the room to be seen by no-one

Whisper a name and pray for the reign

The fire of your fight, The cold of the night

A pearl in the water all your sons and your daughters

Another life…. Another life…

Like a star that was born inside of a bathtub

I will be warmed and cast in the light of the deep blue sea

when you become me once again

 

By the light of your day, in the night where we stay

Don’t know how long we’ve been here but I’ve gotta say

It was fate from the start, by the lines on my heart

Don’t know where we are going, but I’ll sing my part


Shadow Lover
Lyrics by Sea At Last

 

come from the dark

and hidden places

run through the night

with shadow faces

chasin' the light

in heart beat races

come from the dark

and hidden places

 

break the moon upon the ground

no one left to find us now

pull the sun til it comes down

no one left to find us now

 

flight of the storm

the crow will take cover

wings made of oil

a black dove hovers

some wait inside

til it blows over

I pray to the wind

my shadow lover

I pray to the wind

my shadow lover

 

break the moon upon the ground

no one left to find us now

pull the sun til it comes down

no one left to find us now

 


 

Tell Me Your Secrets
Lyrics by Sea At Last

 

you can be right, you can be wrong

you can stay all ... all night long

tell me your secrets, tell me your storm                   

what is your great love, where was it born

in your graces I found mine

in your stories I have time

to climb up the ladder to your bed

hold on to every word you said (x2)

 

tell me your secrets, tell me your storm                   

what is your great love, where was it born

run your horses, run your mouth

tell me what you have come for now

tell me your last line, tell me your first

tell me how you came to break this curse

you can be right / you can be wrong

you can stay all .. all night long (x3)

 

tell me your secrets, tell me your storm                   

what is your great love, where was it born

you can be right, you can be wrong

you can stay all  .. all night long (x3)

 


Breathe It Out
Lyrics by Sea At Last
 

silver hairs and funny birds

woven prayers into liars words

and stains you can’t get out

tree tops know my scars the best

soaring high just to forget

its a long way down

 

ooo, you got your head on strong

but you won’t breathe it out

ooo, you know you don’t belong

but you won’t seek it out

seek it out

 

the sea brought me a gift today

but she took it back before i could say

oh i promise i won’t break it

shadow hands bring shaky storms

you share your smoke just as clouds are born

and the field remember, just how quiet

it can be

 

they say we’re from the land of the free

home of the brave but, too blind to see

you’re a part of this, it’s a part of me

i’ll play the part if you, play along

two birds singin’, different songs

but they both belong

maybe twice as strong

 


 

Mystery
Lyrics by Sea At Last

To fall in love with the mystery

The ecstasy and the agony

What i know, what is callin me

No judgement lies in front of me


If all the notes will only fade away

All is lost and all is found again

oh the passing of the revelry

the sound upon the wind



Listen close in the melody

There's a hand that shapes all the parts of me

Wanted hope but found liberty

In the banishing what was killing me


If all the notes will only fade away

All is lost and all is found again

Oh the passing of the revelry

The sound upon the wind



Comin back the days when I was older

Keep passin through the window

Don't let them go



Chose myself to live this way

Come to terms with the price i pay

Its not too much, I'm not askin much

For the peace of mind and a lovers touch

 



Silent Awake
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep
silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep

they may take, all the ways
silent awake
it may take, all the days
silent awake

silent awake, dawn to take
meet me down by the road
silent awake, I walk this way
meet me down by the road

silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep
silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep

whisper your name, strike the window pane
I've got a story you wrote
whisper your name, strike the window pane
I've got a story you wrote



On My Time
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

I've got a ways to go my friend
I've held your hand, told you when I'm leaving
she's got a heart of gold you know
covers it with winter snow, she's running
faster than a train wreck

it's on my time, I don't mind
'cause I'll find you
it's on my time, we'll unwind
when I find you

I've got a word to say to you
but I can not be half as true as when we're loving
the way animals do
she is brave and strong as nails
she'll take you where those windy sails wont follow
beyond the sunrise

she's on my time, I don't mind
'cause I'll find you
it's on my time, we'll unwind
when I find you

I've listened for all those subtle sounds
morning birds and all I've found is your shadow
pressed against my skin
she says the sea, I say the stars
higher I cry
you take me down to where you are
she says deeper

you're on my time, I don't mind
'cause I found you
yeah it's on my time, we'll unwind
'cause I found you
 



Light Up The Night 
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

I want to see you break down
I want to see your feet hit the ground
oh, what a lovely sound

open a window so I can breathe
my lungs are begging so have some mercy
oh, you smell too sweet

your back is sweaty but my palms are dry
my car's out front, we could go for a ride
oh, we could light up the night

the world's on fire, it's a beautiful burn
no sense on stopping we just wait 'til your turn
oh, we could light up the night now
 



Sleep Inside Thunder
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

you can be my lover
I will build a home
when the storm it comes to take us
your hand in mine I'll hold
the moon will surely guide us
I can be your sun
when the rain is shelter given
our hearts can cry as one

the queen is born at midnight
the king is born at dawn
the moon she hides in twilight
while the sun sings his only song
of the morning we were lovers
before the worlds were made
though I've been known by others
by you my heart is tame

in the rage of death and wonder
the joy of all our light
there is a page in heaven's songbook
I write your name in blood tonight
because I sleep inside your thunder
I stand before your reign
though I've been known by others
by you, my heart is tame

you can be my lover
I will build a home
when the storm it comes to take us
your hand in mine I'll hold



Mighty Flood 
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

lay me down upon the road
pull my hands over my throat

and the fall winds cry
and the bricks will die
and the thirst will come

sometimes it takes a cold river
to heal my wounds
let the water pull
the red fish moan
upon the dirt
upon the dirt

and we go down we go
little feet kickin from a single blow
and how we are
naked in the moon with a feather song
and down we go
stones in our pockets from the night before
and how we are
broken with a crown from the mighty flood

sew your seeds so carefully
plant your flowers in the weeds

and it's moving fast
to a dusty path
deep in my veins

sometimes it takes a cold river
to heal my wounds
let the water pull
the red fish moan
upon the dirt
upon the dirt

and we go down we go
little feet kickin from a single blow
and how we are
naked in the moon with a feather song
and down we go
stones in our pockets from the night before
and how we are
broken with a crown from the mighty flood

sometimes it takes a cold river
to heal my wounds
let the water pull
the red fish moan
upon the dirt
upon the dirt
 



Golden Arrows
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

with your golden arrows, you wound by your love
bruised by your anger, shot from above
with your eyes of fire, burning sky above
all my ashes silence come
oh my love
oh my love .... 

laid at your altar, my tears turn to wine
bruised by your courage, killed by your side
with your eyes of fire, burning sky above
all my ashes silence come
oh my love
oh my love .... 

torn by your mountain, the valley does cry
bruised by your anger, touched by your eye
oh my love
oh my love ..... 



Bittersweet 
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

this road I chose to walk upon
this road I chose
this road I chose, singing the only song

bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
bittersweet isolation, bittersweet

what I find, is only for the blind
and those who choose to be
what I find, comes from deep in my mind
and has eyes only for me

bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
bittersweet isolation, bittersweet

she waits for me with her golden teeth
and long dark hair, she waits
with her gold teeth and her long dark hair
oh she waits, she waits, for me

bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
 



The Cliff 
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

all within a little death he rose, he rose I know
all within the little one, hold time, hold time, out cold

the world bleeds so blue
like we had known
without a care
of all that we had...

a line of gold between two hearts a sun, a sun for sure
how he thought to hold it in, escape, escape the blow

with blood in his veins
while the night still remains
marked by the fall
from all that we had...

while he fought the warriors off a cliff, a cliff did rise
on a bed of velvet ice, he left, he left his eyes
 



Atlas/Sea
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

sea
at last to sea
and the waves
get a hold of me

on all the shores I've loved the most
I found you there
I found you there
to swim by star the golden coast
I find you there
I find you there
the moon can count the days we lost
there is always time
always time
to be the one you fear the most
by my side
by my side

sea
at last to sea
and the waves
get a hold of me

sail away
come back round the other side
sail away
to me

sea
at last to sea
and the waves
get a hold of me
 



The Fire
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(Atlas)

the sun it will set on the lies and regret
and your heart will be pure as a stone
though it crack and it split, you will still live with it
on the path walk towards the home

where you'll put the fire on and burn through the dawn
until you're as bright as the sky
when the night takes you in and the stars all rush in
in darkness you learn how to fly

I have loved you before you walked through the door
still I am watching those eyes
while the world around changes and we appear weightless
I have your heart on my mind

the wind carries it and my hands are open
to whatever it may become
we drink from the well and no one can tell
where we are going or coming from

the sun it will rise and I will look into those eyes
that sometimes appear as my own
we will spread out our wings and forget all these things
into your soul I will go

we will put the fire on and burn through the dawn
all of our love will grow
as the leaves on the trees, blown across the seven seas
moments as these we will come to know



Dream Out Loud
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(The Wade EP)

if you dream, dream out loud
you will be the only sound
I hear tonight beside the phone
spinning satellites on loan

I will hold my head up high
you can start waving goodbye
it is beautiful like a stolen scene
for a 1940’s Pop Star Queen

you’re the only girl of wingless flight
a single star in a covered night
I can wipe the tear out from your eyes
we can start again, if only I

can find the path out in the dark
where a shadow hides a tiny spark
the love is true, as true as hate
as long as life, as strong as fate

I could be your long lost friend
if you would only tell me when
if you did, I cheated too
maybe lied, to tell the truth

I want to die, I want to live
you can take what you wish to give
‘cause the timing's wrong, though the stage is right
our lines get cut in the blinding lights

you're a Motown star in a forgotten town
got a raven’s wing for a golden crown
the songs that play on the radio
have a chorus line that you didn't know

you're a tweed coat on a cigarette
with a hand that shakes and a light that’s bent
baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen these walls and walked this floor

we started pure, we started broke
lived on love, fire and smoke
in a southern sky with the windows down
on an endless road we nailed the note

it’s the last verse, final curse
the only words you don’t rehearse
and I will sing for you if you sing for me
yeah - I will sing for you if you sing for me …. 



Followed
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(The Wade EP)

would you say ... 
you fell asleep today and you found it
you've got a day dream lie
would you say ... 
you stole the only day and you sold it
you've got a one track mind
would you say ... 
you walked through rain to pay and you lost it
you've got a one way ride

I started wondering.. 
I started wondering ... 
could you stop? 

would you say... 
you burned her letter the day that you wrote it
you've got a one track mind
would you say ... 
you fell asleep today and you found it
you've got a one way ride
would you say ... 
you built your heart of clay and you broke it
you've got a day dream lie

I started wondering.. 
I started wondering ... 
could you stop? 

[reprise] 

you have followed long enough..



The Wade
Lyrics by Sea At Last
(The Wade EP)

you say you’re the only one
to who you can be true
you say you’re the only one
who can do what you came here to do

I’ll stand by your side my friend
while you wade through the dark
yeah, I’ll stand by your side my friend
your flame needs a spark
to remind you where you’ve been

I start raising my voice.. 
I start raising my voice.. 
it’s like screaming in the wind

your heart is an open sea
you swim against the tide
you say you’re the only one
in whom you can confide

I’m here to remind you who you’ve been

I start raising my voice.. 
I start raising my voice.. 
it’s like screaming in the wind …



Not Lay Down
Lyrics by Sea At Last

I have come to know the ages of the wind and the stone that hides within
now everywhere I turn there is a page, a part, a pair I take for twins

I will not lay down .. 
I will not lay down … 

I have found a way around it, I have found a way through this broken heart
when the stars come crashing down and the strings that hold us break apart

I will not lay down .. 
I will not lay down … 
'til I hear you sing … 

I am not a poor man, I have come to know my name inside the wind
you can be the ferryman and turn the world against the spin

I will not lay down .. 
I will not lay down … 

I have known you from the start and have known you before I was born
still it's taken half a lifetime and luck to know your form

we can not lay down .. 
we can not lay down … 
'til I hear you sing … 

rounded all the corners and turned the pages of your heart
now everything is clear and I can finally start ..
