"Halcyon" as written by and Samuel Alexander Bentley....
You're free
A lover sinking in the sea
And we
Will let the water fill our lungs
And sleep

Love, we go down, we go down
Breathe, it's over now, over now
We can love, we can love
We can love, we can love
And the birds will sing our song in Halcyon

You're free
A love is coming home to me
The sea
Will pull our bodies down into the deep

Love, we go down, we go down
Breathe, it's over now, over now
We can love, we can love
We can love, we can love
And the birds will sing our song in Halcyon
And the birds will sing our song

The birds will all sing out
The birds will all sing out
The birds will sing our song
The birds will all sing out

We can love, we can love
We can love, we can love
And the birds will sing our song in Halcyon

    General CommentGod, this song is so beautiful. I'm not 100% sure why, but I'm going to say that he's saying the sea will take his life along with his lover's, and they'll live on in heaven and...stuff like that. I'm sure there's more behind it, but I only recently found it.

    General Commenthal·cy·on/ˈhalsēən/
    Adjective:
    Denoting a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful.

    I think that this song is about a relationship that is drawing to a close, and acknowledging the difficulty of letting go of a love that was once ideal. It seems to me to be to a homage to the beautiful tragedy of lost loves. The couple is not happy in love anymore and it's about recognizing that reality, but acknowledging the fact that they will always have those perfect moments in the past that made their love worthwhile. It's a very beautiful song.
