"A Secret Message To You" as written by and Sara E E. Lov Dustin J J O'halloran....
This is what I made
Made it just for you
Its better than a letter
I'm sending it to you

It is made of wood, mud and salt and glue
I wanted to build it big
And sail away with you

This is where the wood started to get loose
And this is where I painted a little deer
A secret message to you

Its tiny sail that I cut from magazine
With the letters of your name

I want to see it go
It wishes it was in the sea tonight
And I weighed it, with an anchor, just an eraser

It is really much too small to use
I ran out of glue

You could put it in the water
And pretend that I am there with you
Sailing in the seas together
Me and you

    General Commenta beautiful song. wanting to give so much to this person but not being able to, so making do with what you have-- a simple magazine cut-out sail, and an eraser, etc.
    about how the littlest things symbolize the bigger things, and the little dreams that you wish you could turn to bigger ones.
    the person she loves is far away and she can't be with them, and she's alone, building this little ship for him to imagine they are together in it, sailing away, just the two of them alone and free.

    General CommentOH how I love this song! I only discovered it today. Oh dear me-- I will never be the same. To me, it's about someone wanting to be with some one more than anyone has ever wanted to be with anyone-- a wanting with a ache! Oh, I love the video (it reminds me of Little Dragon's TWICE video). The song makes me sad, but along with the video it reduces me to tears!

    General Commentthis song is an amazing art work,
    full of the original emotion from a pure heart.
    always reminding me and my love are in the different places,
    the only wish i have is to sail away with him, just him and me.
