lyrics

Daughter of the wind don't make no sense
It's the sea kin I'm interested in
Can't hum moon mantra
Can't outrun Atalanta
But I'm bound to be your haven again

If it looks like blood and tastes like blood,
That's a real bad wine
Oh honey but it lasts the night

Aren't you tired of being a hapless dreamer?
Pitching pennies into pitch black water
See you standing, but I can't defeat you
Something visceral said I ought to spare you
Got to run to where I can't defend you

Daughters of the sea don't do nothin' for me
And her daughters could not care for me
I taste her waters and she took it to the altar
Said, "what sin you been livin' in?"

If you don't want to go, honey don't say no
I will carry your fault
I will wear your heart like an antidote

Aren't you tired of being a hapless dreamer?
Pitching pennies into pitch black water
See you standing, but I can't defeat you
Something visceral said I ought to spare you
Got to run to where I can't defend you
