lyrics

I'm going home for a while,
to hide in the miles.
And wear my old friends out,
with my city doubts.
Let it drop like a callus,
left shriveled in the sun.
Tell me I'm older,
tell me I'll grow out of this one.

Use all my daytime to make maps to show me how,
all my ships sank, and the outcome just gave out.
But it's still the same old sea,
facing blue to me when the night comes around.

I'm staring at the skyline like an evil eye,
as if it could protect me or deny anything,
I've been sweating up the steam to ask for.
Like it sees and breathes,
just enough to tell me no.
Looking at the city,
I could mistake those buildings for baring teeth.

Use all my daytime to make maps to show me how,
all my ships sank, and the outcome just gave out.
But it's still the same old sea,
facing blue to me when the night comes around.

Lay me to bed for a while,
I'm no good at fighting the night.
But no light tends to keep me awake.
I've been told only confusion stays up late.
Set it aside,
only to find I'm dreaming on it inside.

Use all my daytime to make maps to show me how,
all my ships sank, and the outcome just gave out.
But it's still the same old sea,
facing blue to me when the night comes around.

about

Robin Bacior Portland, Oregon

Born and raised in California, Bacior took great influence from California folk traditions and brought them with her to New York, where she began to collaborate with cellist Dan Bindschedler.
