  1. Your First Ocean

From the recording Borrowed Lines in Borrowed Time

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
