The Fisherman's Line

from by Erik Sanko

lyrics

He knew her face better when the lights were off
and could not erase the palette of her words.
They made their way into the tissue of his dreams
and built their nest, shiny silver birds.
No longer can the fisherman stand by.
She knew his face better when the screen was lit
and cut and paste a dialogue of bones.
And in a place somewhere in between the frames
she found a grace withered and alone.
No longer can the fisherman stand
the tightness of the line so he closes his eyes
and raises his hands high.
Now when they face it seems that all the lines are blurred
once pulled so tense from under and above.
And now they trace two figures as they intertwine.
The sea's embrace envelopes them in love.
No longer can the fisherman stand the tightness
of the line so he closes his eyes and raises his hands
to the endless plain of sky.
