The Blanket Of Night lyrics

Paper cup of the boat
Heaving chest of the sea
Carry both of us,

Carry her, carry me

From the place we were born
To the land of the free
Carry both of us,
Carry her, carry me

The ocean that bears us from our home
Could save us, or take us for its own
The danger that life should lead us in
My angel, could I have steered us clear?

Gone the light from her eyes
With the lives that we made
Just the two of us
In the night, on the waves

Moving silent her lips
By the moon's only light
Sewing silver prayers
In the blanket of night

The ocean that bears us from our home
Could save us, or take us for its own
The danger that life should lead us in
My angel, could I have steered us clear?

Paper cup of the boat
Heaving chest of the sea
Carry both of us,
Or swallow her, swallow me
