Deep Water
by Sarah Hawker ASCAP

All my intentions and all of my plans
and all of my maps to far distant lands
Float lifeless across the oceans darkened floor
The broken compass of my lonely dreams
Lays buried beneath a shipwreck of schemes
The sound of the wind on the water is all that remains

Chorus
Way out on the deep blue sea
Let the waves just carry me, to deep, deep water
To deep, deep water
 
At the edge of this town in a field of wild flowers
You'll find the box where I hid the hour
I walked out the door and hitchhiked to the edge of the sea
and if you look for my home out among all the weeds
and wonder whatever happened to me
Just read the letter I wrote to you in your dream

Chorus
Way out on the deep blue sea
Let the waves just carry me, to deep, deep water
To deep, deep water

Under the tree where the crows have all gathered
Like stories we bear of things we think matter
I'll meet you out there, where words have nothing to say
And then we'll clap our hands and make the birds fly
And lay in the tall grass and look at the sky
You'll take my hand and then you'll know my name

Chorus
Way out on the deep blue sea
Let the waves just carry me, to deep, deep water
To deep, deep water
