Into the arms of the sea
Where my tired head carried me
I walked out into the breeze
To be quiet with the storms inside

I prayed
But that's never worked
Why would it now?
Lifted my arms out and tenderly whispered
“I've lost my way somehow”

Take, take these eyes
And all I was and my disguise
And lay them out, on the beach
'Cause I won't need them now them
To see inside

Take, take this voice
And all it's songs from my insides
And spread them out over the waves
over the sea, above the cliffs
In melody

So come home,
come on home
It's over now
This walkabout
It's been so long
It's been so long
Come home please

Into the arms of the sea
Where my tired head carried me
I walked out into the waves
To be quiet with the storms inside

    General CommentBilly McCarthy talks about growing up in a small town in Oregon, possibly on the coast. If that's the case, or if he at least has memories of going to the beach/the sea, this song makes for the perfect homecoming song --- coming home to a place where all of the fronts and aires that we put on are left on the beach and we take our place.
