nightship lyrics – anne clark

the ship slips out from the grasp of the harbour
out of its hold into the restless water
silently, steadily, edging away
silently, steadily, pulling away

i feel my heart swell, surge inside me
rising and falling, waves that take me
silently, steadily, onwards away

slow-motion world, night glimmering blackness
deep as the stars in the far-off darkness –
lights caught in time, far far away

bound to the earth, burnt through with fire
loose on the water, moving through air
all traces p*ss sooner or later
behind and beyond, far far away.
