Wordy Wednesday (“Across the Sea”)

This week’s Wordy Wednesday is a song I wrote for some friends going through a tough time right now. (Note: I was sick when I recorded the video of it, so my voice is kind of dying during it, but it gives you an idea of what it sounds like.)

Lyrics:

**********

VERSE 1 [C, Em, Am, G]

Hey there, all the way across the sea

I’m thinking of you thinking of me

Sisters in this land of damaged hands

 

And I am walking across quicksand

Knowing only you could understand

The words I feel the need to say

 

TRANSITION 1 [Em, Am, C, G]

Like you are going to be okay

This doesn’t have to end this way

 

CHORUS [C, Em, Am, G]

It’s just a matter of time

’Til you see the sunrise, and

This night will go away

They say it’s darkest before the day

 

It’s just a matter of time

Before your bruises fade to scars

And that smile will be there

As visible as the stars

 

Saving you, saving you

Saving you, saving me

Across the sea

 

VERSE2

Hey there, you’re all alone

At the top of the world

The air’s so thin you feel

Like falling down

 

And I am here waiting

To catch you on the ground

A parachute between us,

It can carry you

Safely down

 

TRANSITION 2 [Em, Am, C, G]

There’s no need to be afraid

You are going to find your way

 

[Repeat CHORUS]

 

BRIDGE [Em, Am, C, G]

And I know he scares you,

But leaving scares you more

And I know it’s easier

To touch the window than open the door

 

But this is for your own good,

Moving on like melting snow

It doesn’t mean forgetting,

It means letting go

 

[Repeat CHORUS]

*********

 

Don’t forget to check back later this week for Chapter Two of This Is a Book!
