LYRICS:

I pulled to the edge of the road, I got out, and I walked
Hundreds of miles from a stoplight and rolling North
Nothing in mind but escaping the fallout so hot
And nothing to feel but the Labor Day sunshine so warm

I don’t know how to move on, but September does
​One day after the other, and if it's just
​A little darker every day
​Well the leaves look happy falling, don't they
Don't they

But my hope is not light
​It is not frail, it is the anchor anchor
​My hope is not slight
​It’s not the sail, it is the anchor anchor, oh

Friends formed a line over Christmas for coffee & ghosts
To nail down the tragedy's lesson and swear and sigh
They’re kind and they’re real but I'm a little relieved when they go
'Cause what they all want to give me they can't,
Though I'm grateful they try

​I don’t know how to move on but my body does
​I’ll find the rhythms that I walked in once
​My hands make tea, my brow makes furrows
​My ankles cross, my shoulders worry for one
​And my lips say, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, mm-hmm mm-hmm mm-hmm

But my hope is not light
​It is not frail, it is the anchor anchor
​My hope is not slight
​It’s not the sail, it is the anchor anchor, oh

I took my first flight home to you on the Fourth of July
With lightning a-riot above and fireworks below
Oh, something possessed the Midwestern summer sky
Thunder and sparklers, aurora and stars, and a red sub-Arctic sunrise

My heart was in my eyes

​I don’t know how to move on
But this airplane does
You run real fast with your nose up and jump
​It does the work if I just let it

​I wonder if I've been struck by lightning yet
​Have I been struck by lightning yet?
​Have I been struck by lightning yet?
Have I been struck by lightning yet?

'Cause my hope is not light
​It is not frail, it is the anchor anchor
​My hope is not slight
​It’s not the sail, it is the anchor anchor, oh oh

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
