The story of

The Ship and the Waves

album 8.8 / 2021-09-08
jazzy songwriter / rhodes, piano, bass, drum kit, vocals

The Ship and the Waves is the strongest and most signature-like song of the whole 8.8 album. Hazy almost, with panning to imitate the sea's movement, and full of acknowledgment of life and partnership hardships that shake one to the core... The Ship and the Waves song is propelled by the monotone jazzy guitar while in opposition to the moving /sound/ waves of rhodes and piano. Full of the unspoken, the Ship and the Waves has its own acoustic strength and an unseen internal acceptance.

& lyrics

My ship has sailed, but has it really?
 There’s too much, too many of uncertain feelings
 And the storm in the robes of a lamb
 
 What is missed, does wet mean pleased?
 Four-leaved clover, it’s over
 
 My ship has sailed, I’m lost at sea
 Or am I the sea, too large to see me..?
 
 I wanted to care but I cared way too much
 The way to nowhere, the rays you can touch
 Burning bright, burning, burned over with grace
 
 Bear with me, I’ll carry thee
 
 You’ll be the ship 
 And I’ll be the waves
 The waves, the waves
 
 The protector of the commotion
 Humor me, human slow as the wide oceans
 Blue in the face that never gets too green
 Inhuman remains hidden behind screens
 
 Protective smoke and the mirrors 
 Mirrored to never get clearer
 
 I wanted to be there, I was way too much
 Getting there, got nowhere, the whole world to watch
 The bright star to follow to forget starts
 
 But bear with me, I’ll carry thee
 
 You’ll be the ship 
 And I’ll be the waves
 The waves, the waves
 
 The ship, the waves, the golden shore views
 The ship, the waves, the forever cruise
 
 I wanted to care but I cared way too much
 The way to nowhere, the rays you can touch
 Burning bright, burning, burned over with grace
 
 Bear with me, I’ll carry thee
 
 You’ll be the ship 
 And I’ll be the waves
 The waves, the waves
 
 Bear with me, I’ll carry thee
 
 Until you’ll be the ship 
 Until I’ll be the waves
 Carry me always
