lyrics

She holds her heart on the outside of her skin
Makes the best of me rise out of the din
In this saloon of tired souls
Broken chains sing each other whole
She holds her heart on the outside of her skin

Sea-change eyes & bitter gin
A bite of brine & a song of sin

Her name can conjure ever last blue sky
Her voice may crack, may be slick or sly
Her hands may mold, make silent calls
Her lips can catch me when I fall
Her name can conjure ever last blue sky

Sea-change eyes & bitter gin
A bite of brine & a song of sin

I am building a tower of song
With amber tunes that rhyme her name along
The curve her hips may trace beneath
The hymn her body sings within my hungry reach

Babylon would blush to play this game
Pull aside the curtain, give this tune a name
Call it bliss or rapture
Call it what you will
Set me on my course and give me to my quill
Set me out my course, let me eat my fill

Sea-change eyes & bitter gin
A bite of brine & a song of sin
