"Turn the Sea" written/arranged by Natalie Cressman
Artwork by Ivan Rosenberg

Chase me down a dimly lit stairway,
Place your bets on a fool's dream,
Feel the spurn handed right back to you,
See the dreams drip out of both your eyes,

Your face silent, your lips just like a ghost town
Mirrors mine a moon ago
I thought I unstitched my heart from your sleeve,
Oh how I was wrong,

But you can't turn the ocean on its back,
Look a storm in the eye from afar,
Disarmed by a wind with a white flag,
I awoke with my heart on your arm,

Open up my eyes,
Prove me wrong,
Lets distrust the skies,
Dare the rain to fall
