lyrics

Stella Maris

Stella Maris -a female protector or guiding spirit at sea (a title sometimes given to the Virgin Mary). ORIGIN Latin, literally ‘star of the sea.’


Wipe the sleep from the ice
my love are you sad tonight?

aroura singoirina
burning sodium balerina
white dove
the love I never knew


A man adrift on a slim spar
He shrinks to nothing from afar


Slow light makes new memories
Shares secrets in the breathing chrome

Now we could just drift forever
Just on inertia
You wait here
Until you are pure

Open the wings to catch the rays
Open the wings to catch the waves


& there’s a home for the little children
far above the bright blue sky
among the God strewn galaxies
that raise no walls.
A life beyond
What we ‘ve known as life

Open the wings to catch the rays
Open the wings to catch the waves
