  1. Thank You -:-- / 7:14

When I got on the bus that February morning
The frost had already gone
You bought me coffee but our tongues were thick with cold
Icicles melting slowly in the sun

Outside of Cleveland there was an accident
Lives lost, the driver saved us by a fluke
At the scene no one stopped to help the children who were bleeding
The Americans said, How long are we off-route?

And I thought of you and how you would have moved with passion
Through the isle, like the sun
And I thanked god I was alive
And everyone, everyone should be singing

Thank you
Though the storm howls outside
Cold winds are strong
But I am stronger
Inside, so thank you

Home on the coastline I remember I am the sea
I am a shell filled, ships, bodies and glass pour into me
I dull sharp edges and disappear the pain
But I’ve learned more than simply having lost or having gained

The seaweed covers rocks like a weeping woman’s hair
The waves and seagulls fly
But you went dancing too close to the water
And got swept up by the tide

And I’m sorry I couldn’t love you like I wanted to
You were sharp glass and I was sea
You couldn’t stand my wild breakers
But I was just being me

So thank you
Though the storm howls outside
Cold winds are strong
But I am stronger
Inside, so thank you

Tonight I go to watch the sunset
And remember your hand in mine
The night is filled with smoke and purple moons
But I’m feeling fine

So thank you
Though the storm howls outside
Cold winds are strong
But I am stronger
Inside, so thank you

Thank you
