"Lost at Seaflower Cove" as written by and Laura Veirs....
Oh the dirty wordless fingers come again
Where the mermaid singers
Oh when I need them
Oh how I need them

Pretty words doled up on silver platters
Chanting sea shanties the words that matter
Oh how they shatter me

Tattooed sailor man pull that net from the sea
Is there something good inside there for me
Something for me
No more rusty strings not these deadened things

    General CommentThis is the song that made me fall in love with Laura Veirs. It's so vivid and conjurs up the most beautiful images (at least for me). I want to say it's a bit like a surrealist painting- sort of dreamlike- but I don't know enough about that to really make the comparison.

    In any case, the aesthetics of this song are incredible.

    General CommentShort and sweet. Musically, IMO, it borrows from Yes/All Good People/Your Move. That musical chorus is evident through several songs in the album giving it an interesting coherency.
