Bowerbirds – Stitch The Hem Lyrics

Bowerbirds – Stitch The Hem Lyrics

All the while
The sea oats bowed
Against the dunes
Your arms stretched out
And how the shadows glide
The story hastens by
We hold on tight

The drafty night lets the quiet in
And our breath in the same motion, ooh
There's a hope that we have what we need
Stitch the hem along the edge
Of these scenes and colors
Find the form in the patient sea

But nature is
A vibrant quilt
And all I want
Is it all stretched out
To the tattered edge
Through the long afternoon
The sun snuffed out
In the palm of the ocean

The drafty night lets the quiet in
And our breath in the same motion, ooh
There's a hope that we have what we need
Stitch the hem along the edge
Of these scenes and colors

Find the light in our time here given
Find the depth in our hearts' intention
Like the starch in the patient seed
