lyrics

rise, little heart
let the sun warm you out of bed
walk, weary heart
make your way to the water’s edge

you are saltwater, daughter
you ebb and you flow
you are saltwater, daughter
you are the undertow

swim, tethered heart
til the land is horizon line
float, heavy heart
you will be cradled by the tide

you are saltwater, daughter
you ebb and you flow
you are saltwater, daughter
you are the undertow

slow, beating heart
fill your lungs with the ocean air
courage, dear heart
you are stronger than the pain you bear

you are saltwater, daughter
you ebb and you flow
you are saltwater, daughter
you are the undertow
