lyrics

SALT AND SIXPENCE
T Randle
Salt and sixpence for your thoughts
Never endings of sorts
Flat as the ocean I will rock you gently
And I’ll try to sway in time
Until you change key

And all of the ladies in their gilded frames
Their painted mouths barely concealing their disdain
Your false bravado makes for interesting reading
And nothing will ever grow, if you don’t stop the bleeding

And if you’ll be my boat,
then I’ll be the blue
And I’ll try not to float,
too close to you
So flicker and dance little light in the inky black sea of me,
and I’ll sail out to greet you,
To greet me

And for every note that is perfect and true,
your imperfections have a much brighter hue
For every look that’s directed at me,
reflects in a mirror for all to see
