lyrics

SMOOTH SEA

Stepfather’s old sailor pipe, smoking
He got that old fish cutter seagoing
Momma knew what laid in store

This safe Harbor kept him gone
Leaving Momma longing
Hanging on

Every night she was rocking to the lighthouses pulse
Listening to the rain and thunder growls

Holding his pillow tight, she said
Her tears would make an ocean of her bed

The words she left unspoken
Overplaying, laughing and joking
And I knew what laid in store

She said, don’t be sad for me, it’s alright
She said and kept staring at the throbbing light
But I could see it break through the tear in the corner of her eye

I heard her cry almost every night
Something that feels so wrong just can’t be right

And then as they found this wreck of a little boat
Some said there was a rope around his throat
Only one voice could be heard cutting through the morning cold

She said, don’t be sad for me, it’s alright
And kept staring at the throbbing light
But I saw it break in the tear in the corner of her eye
