I learned to live - learned of life
granted by the pain
I learned how it felt to love
laying in the rain

My feet found their home
walking upon the shore
the air so salty - the air so clean
I learned to love some more

I've learned too from anguish
when my lovers go
and then my soul - I send out to sea
to the healing place below

Life isn't ceaseless sorrow or love
it's balanced well indeed
with a pinch of this and a pinch of that
and a balm made of seaweed
