little seahorse lyrics – bruce cockburn

little seahorse
swimming in a primal sea
heartbeat like a
leaf quaking in the breeze
i feel magic as coyote
in the middle of the moon-wild night

in the forge-fire time
your mother glowed so bright
you were like a
voice calling in the night
and i’m watching the curtain
rising on a whole new set of dreams

the world is waiting
like a lake superior gale
a locomotive
racing along the rail.
it’ll sweep you away
but you know that you’re never alone

little seahorse
floating on a primal tide
quickening like a
spark in a haystack side
i already love you
and i don’t even know who you are

/ bruce cockburn lyrics
