Sailor To Siren
Lyrics Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop

Written by: Sam Beam, Jesca Hoop

This tenderness comes as a surprise
Drinking where the riverbed was dry
Trees in the wind trembling with love

Mad morning light drew you out the door
Mama didn't need you anymore
She pointed at night but you saw the stars

Brace yourself and nestle into me
Bare it all like fallen autumn leaves
You don't even know me that well

Now every blossom's ready to explode
Rooted in the cracks along the road
The world is a dream that wiggled free

Wild distant water told me where to run
Papa let me know I'm not enough
He took out the life and left me the hole

Are you the sailor or the siren in the tide?
Trusts a tiny ocean and besides
You don't even know me that well

Your song is warm and coming through the wall
Hearts are thrown to strangers after all
You don't even know me that well
