in the dark a secret river conceals itself
in the heart it pulls me under the deepest spell
tonight will you carry me down to the shore
lead me into the flood
climb to your room watch you sleep at the windowsill
where sturgeon moons wash away those looks that kill
the light may shine for you but shadow will follow wherever you go
leave me in the flood
leave me in the blood


from call the waves, released February 1, 2016
