Josh Ritter lyrics : "Change Of Time"

I had a dream last night
I dreamt that I was swimming
And the stars up above

Directionless and drifting
Somewhere in the dark
Were the sirens and the thunder

And around me as I swam
The drifters who'd gone under

Time, Love
Time, Love
Time, Love

It's only a change of time

I had a dream last night

And rusting far below me
Battered hulls and broken hardships
Leviathan and lonely

I was thirsty so I drank
And though it was salt water
There was something 'bout the way

It tasted so familiar

The black clouds I'm hanging

This anchor I'm dragging
The sails of memory rip open in silence
We cut through the lowlands

All hands through the saltlands
The white caps of memory
Confusing and violent

I had a dream last night
And when I opened my eyes

Your shoulder blade, your spine
Were shorelines in the moonlight
New worlds for the weary

New lands for the living
I could make it if I tried
I closed my eyes I kept on swimming
