Lyrics

No taller than my knee

when you challenge, your first ocean.

Ankle deep

you strain your body, against my tight grip

throw head to sky

capture the ocean’s roar

into the cave of your mouth

Even when the waves spill into you

 

CHORUS

Watching you, I question

do you remember your first ocean?

Watching you, I question

do you remember your first ocean?

 

fill you with your first taste of salt

you do not bend from the task

of challenging your first ocean.

Today you turn your back to the same tide

stretch and yawn, open wide

that same cave that had taken

in some primal catch

to tell me you haven’t eaten yet.


CHORUS
