"One Sail" as written by and Meg/frampton Frampton....
Never was a navy brat, but my father was, yeah
He warned me not to make friends with weather.
My love rests in a shipwreck.
With a compass in his head.

I'll wait for him,
Like vultures wait for bodies.
Please send the wind out,
I hear his voice now,
At the bottom of the blue.
I'll get my coat,
It'll be the second coming outside,
When I return with you.
I'm a ship like you.
One sail.
One sea.
You and me.

And I left my soul next to the shore.
One sail.
One sea.
Wait with my face in sun.
That makes me look less young.
I miss your half Irish grin,
And our love is growing upside down.

They say you'll never make it home!
But I will wait,
Won't bury your clothes.
Please send the wind out, and bring him back now,
Because he is to me my life.

Think about sinking down.
Think about all of it.
Think his face drowning out.
I think of it all

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who loses her boyfriend (or husband, whatever) in a shipwreck, and she misses him. At least, that's what I think.

    General CommentProbably one of my favorite songs off their new CD Here, Here and Here.

    I feel this one might have some more personal meanings to them, so if anyone can find anything that would be awesome.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It's actually about Meg & Dia's grandparents, I believe.

    General CommentYes, for some reason I'm compelled to believe it's about their grandparents...I don't remember from where I learned this. It may be in a blog/vlog somewhere if you follow the development of this album.

    such a beautiful line. you can really hear the passion in Dia's voice.
    She has one of the most perfect voices I've ever heard.

    & this song is for sure about their grandparents. SO Beautiful.
