lyrics

Whisper, whisper shrill, so sharp and cold
sailors rocking in the sheltered hold,
you wake up from a dream
of whooping cranes and ships with wings,

With timeless rhythm you are washed with light,
eardrums, pupils fight the sweet invite
escaping into a dream
of nimbus clouds on yoyo strings

Is it overboard to say, "don't tempt me I will crash if I stray!"
if your sweet lips sing no words, I'll die from the silence heard.
aaaaaahhh aaaaahhhh

Whisper, whisper wind, a buoyant plea
mist like drapes blankets the swelling seas,
you wake up from a dream
of whooping cranes and ships with wings
