12, 11, 10, 9
And so, in my house I've built a shrine
8, 7, 6, 5
But I have dreamt he's still alive
4, 3, 2, 1
In the lands of light his voice is sung

Row row row row
The time is right for us to go

Bloom the night in all her darkness
Daphne froze in her white night gown
Cotton be around your body
The sea is calling me down
The sea is calling me down

Bloom the night in all her darkness
Daphne froze on the glass abyss
Years of tears had salt her body
And she cried nevermore
And she cried nevermore

1, 2, 3, 4
For you, my love, I'll wait no more
5, 6, 7, 8
Lay your kisses to rest at the garden gates
9, 10, 11, 12
Because I've got to save myself

Row, row, row, row
The time is right for you to go

    Song MeaningDuring a Q&A session in New York, Natasha said it is about "my grandmother and her relationship with my grandad and when he went to war. It's actually a quite haunting, dark song but I like it."
