The Seventh String

Transcendental indie folk

Transcendental folk band The Seventh String blends Celtic, classical and rock twists into traditional American songwriting.

Gulls

Laura Benson

 

Take my hand

I’ll lay it here in yours

In the sand

On this foreign shore

 

Take my hand

Won’t you clasp it to yours close

As we stand

Surrounded by our ghosts

 

And we’ll float

Like two gulls in the wind

We’ll float

Watch the earth as it spins

 

We’ll float

Like two seabirds fair

Over land remote

Suspended in the air, oh…

 

Take my words

Every paragraph and paraphrase

And for once

Won’t you leave me with nothing to say?

Take my words

I will write them for you on a page

Bind them up

Give you a book, that you can save

 

And we’ll float

Like two gulls in the wind

We’ll float

Watch the earth as it spins

 

We’ll float

Like two seabirds fair

Over land remote

Suspended in the air, oh…

 

Take my heart

I offer it beating

As we start

Maybe you can stop the bleeding

Take my heart

I will wear it for you on my sleeve

Don’t you part

Stay here and fall in love with me

 

And we’ll float

Like two gulls in the wind

We’ll float

Watch the earth as it spins

 

We’ll float

Like two seabirds fair

Over life remote

Suspended in the air, oh…
