1. Shipwrecked

From the recording Shipwrecked

Melissa Cox and Chris Kenna


She sang to me each night;
Her voice shone silver
Like the moonlight on the waves.

I fell into her light;
She drew me under
With the promises she gave.

Kiss me with your salty lips
Frozen silver drags me down
I reach out with my fingertips
As I drift away and drown

I gave it all away—
My history, my future,
My sanity, my word—

Desperate to find
The feminincarnation
Of the music that I heard.
