This sea was the place where she used to swim
And the beach has the footprints we left back then
When we met we were freezing from cold
But our stories, we told
In the words we found warmth
And I recall

How she said that when she was here
That her loneliness was left on the pier
She could wade through the waves off the shore
So she dared to explore
But the currents contained
Her final day

This jar you see before you
Is all that's left of her so
Tonight I spread her ashes
Into the yearning ocean
This jar cannot contain her
The sea is waiting for her
The tide pulls in as her ashes say bye

She’s gone but she lingers inside my mind
Could it be that our lives are still intertwined?
And the weights that before made me sink
They are no longer linked
So a magnetic pulls
Has beckoned me

To a voyage into the sea
As the salt of my tears make it hard to see
With a taste they remind me of her
Now I can't be deterred
And tonight I set sail
Because one fact:

All rivers flow to oceans
I know that's where I’ll find her
And though a storm is looming
Only my quest consumes me
I’m casting off to find her
A map is not required
My compass is inside of my chest

And though my ship is tangled in nets of seaweed
I believe it's just her hair
Maybe this is her way of telling me that I should
Stay with her this time
I’ll always wish I was here to save her on that night
