golden light through the open door,
splashless breeze against your skin.
on the wind, the salty tide
of sweat, of tears, of ocean.

golden light through the old window,
spilling out on the floor.
on the wind, the luring call
of toil, of change, of joy.

oh your errant heart
swept along by the breeze again.

so you’re lost in the golden light,
splashless while you drift.
but on the wind there’s nothing left,
nothing left to swim against.

oh your unmoored heart
drawn along in the wake again.
oh your unmoored heart
drawn along in the wake again.

oh your wild heart
wasn't it always someplace else?
