about

The original studio version of this song appears on the album 'Something Fierce.' This version is slightly abridged.

lyrics

Today my childish laughter falls away / the stakes were real and we won’t feel okay
With a knot of bitter worry in my eyes / and a tearless year or two since the last day
The last damn day, the last day that I cried

No no no no / take me back home / no no no no / take me away
Bring her ’round slow / no no no no
Tie her up right / I’ll sail round the night / I’ll dock when it’s day
No no no no / I got no home / no no no no / only a way
Bring her ’round slow / no no no no
I know where I’ll land / I’ll unclench my hands / I’m willing to stay

So see me down, see me down to the edge of the wild
Stroll me out to the end of the pier
Reel me in to the places we knew our own faces
Over wine, over coffee and beer
And anchor me anchor me anchor me anchor me here

Walk with me, the sunset’s three hours long tonight / we’ll blind our disbelieving eyes with light
And if the dusk admits our fear of death / we’ll write a worthy hymn and cork it fast
Cork it fast, we’ll float it west

No no no no / got a ring full of keys / no no no no / not a one of ‘em mine
Bring her ’round slow / no no no no
Fold up the maps / if love goes by haps / why look for a sign
No no no no / I got no home / no no no no / only a way
Bring her ’round slow / no no no no
The water’s not clear / but I’ve washed ashore here / and I’m willing to stay

So see me down, see me down to the edge of the wild
Stroll me out to the end of the bow
Point me back to the places we knew our own faces
Without wondering much why or how
And anchor me anchor me anchor me anchor me now

My body and my mind have scarcely met / I’ve spent my whole life being elsewhere and elsewhen
So ground me in the only house I own / forgive my absence, love — and teach me to live
Teach me to live, to live alone, no no no no, see me down, see me down…

And anchor me anchor me anchor me anchor me here

about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
