"Lissie's Heart Murmer" as written by and Jennifer Lee Lindberg Emily Camille Kokal....
On the edge of the water where the ships pass by
And the sound of your laughter in the endless sky
Tips my head back, full of swimming thoughts
Beneath deep breathing that sinks so far down
That sings so far down

And I handle my business and I know the prize
Is of no consequence. You have looked with your eyes
Wide open to what's inside, that sinks so far down

I'm in two

I went looking, went searching under the water
Sinking and pushing, till you pulled me under
To where you are, to where we build our house
And so we sink so far down
And we can't go back now, can't go back now

On the edge of the water where the ships pass by
And the sound of your laughter in the endless sky
Tips my head back, full of swimming thoughts
Beneath deep breathing

Now I stay holding this honesty with you

I went looking, went searching under the water
Sinking and pushing, till you pulled me under
To where you are, to where we build our house
And so we sink so far down
And we can't go back now

Sink so far down when I know you're around
And I can't go back now, can't go back now

    General CommentI haven't though a lot about the meaning, but the way Emily sings the word "Endless" nearly tears my heart to pieces every time I hear it.

    General CommentYes it is a beatiful song ...
    my favourite in the album ..these girls play great
    but again i thought the lyrics are different
    especially the first part

    i thought it is - "

    Takes my head back
    go swimming
    godspeed me ..deep breathing
    but we sink so far down "
    or maybe "i sink .."

    Not sure anyway its a great final song for the album

    General CommentI read an interview with one of the band members and she said that the song is about a woman who falls in love with a mermaid and leaves to live and be with him.

    General CommentThis song indeed is about girl falling in love with mermaid,but its metaphor

    A lot of our music is about self-reflection – I mean, all the lyrics are. “Majesty” is about a relationship I had, and I finally won that person back, because they were just not there where I wanted them to be, but then I realized I didn’t want it anymore. Emily and I wrote “Warpaint” together, which is a story about a conflicted person. Emily’s song, “Baby,” is obviously about a break-up. “Lissie’s Heart Murmur” is also one of Emily’s – it’s about somebody who just doesn’t want to live anymore.
