about

A song about finding that place where you feel free.

lyrics

I found rest in your anchor
Deep on the floor of our sea
When you put it on paper
You were never meant for me
And I’ll work up the courage
To tell you that we were wrong
Be kind, rewind now I see that
It was written in our song
And I take comfort in nighttime
Knowing you’ll get some sleep
Your soul’s beauty knows no end, boy
But its match is not with me

When you found it somehow
As waves crash on the shore
Singing freedom in the night
Now you can’t ignore
That you’re flying in your dreams
For the very first time
And this newfound love
For the truth that has come
Out of the hardship of life
Now you’ve finally won
The right to be free
Your melody
Your heart is beating to a whole new drum
You’re gonna find your sun

Now I don’t know when I’ll see you
But I think it’s for the best
In our story I told you
To fight despite all the rest
Now it’s time to disregard that
You know we were too young
And I don’t know if this helps but
Just know I’m healthy for once

When you found it somehow
As waves crash on the shore
Singing freedom in the night
Now you can’t ignore
That you’re flying in your dreams
For the very first time
And this newfound love
For the truth that has come
Out of the hardship of life
Now you’ve finally won
The right to be free
Your melody
Your heart is beating to a whole new drum
You’re gonna find your sun
