lyrics

Come into these yellow sands,
And take these hands
When you fall onto your knees,
Wild waves talk like bees -
Full Fathom Five your father lies,
Of his bones are coral made
Those are pearls that were his eyes
Nothing of him there remains
But whispers…

Chorus:

The sun flees your eyes
Moonshadows play with flies
Carry your soul to the fray
A seachange in May!
Cats scatter past your gate
Sounds of traffic will not wait
New words born each day
A seachange in May, a seachange in May!
