about

A birthday present for the muse. My first Logic Pro recording. Kind of raw, but I hope you'll like it anyway!

lyrics

Ultramarine

This is not a tale of sorrow
This is not a song of woe
This is not the path of heartbreak
This is where the dreamers go

Heart of lapis Heart of wisdom
Heart of faith and Heart of stone
Dream of lapis Dream forever
Dream a love That calls you home


Chant a calling, ocean crossing
String the harp and hair the bow
Waves tossing, souls falling
Ultramarine embers glow

I am a pair of nut-brown eyes
I am the singing soul
I am a mirror, a reflection
I'm a touch that makes you whole


In an autumn early morning
Dressed too late with summer leaves
We are dancing with our senses
We are what providence weaves

I am magic strings of silver
I'm the voice of future songs
I am singing I am singing
My voice you knew all along


From the ancient afghan mountains
Came the tint that binds the paint
Dress the Virgin, dress the wise man
Dress the ropes of our restraint

I am from beyond the ocean
I entrance your eyes
I am wearing stones of wisdom
I'm your heart's reprise


Caught inside a heart of lapis
Caught inside a heart of stone
Caught inside a heart forever
Caught until a heart comes home

Take this heart, it's made of lapis
Take this heart, it's made of stone
Take this heart, it spells forever
Take this heart and call it home
