about

This is a song about love and loss. Battles, blood, and sacrifice for those you love. It's about how perhaps women in eras past may have felt knowing their warriors were leaving for the last time, possibly to never to see them again, and the desperation one might feel. You'd do anything to stop them from going, but sometimes love means letting go and letting history unfold.

lyrics

Come to the sea, wash the memories of war away
Lay your head down, ease the pain now, even in your dreams
It’s far from over, I can see the storm on the horizon
Like a little child, I weep over you, ‘till you come back to me

My heart is surrounded
I’ll lay my weapons down
This battle’s just beginning
Standing on this mountain
I will surrender now
Today I’m giving in

Bring your wounds, bring your broken blades and chronicles
Time to breathe, and time to leave again, making history complete
I know it’s far from over, I can see the storm on the horizon
But for a little while, let me memorize the last time I will see your face...

My heart is surrounded
I’ll lay my weapons down
This battle’s just beginning
Standing on this mountain
I will surrender now
Today I’m giving in

This heavy armor has been weighing you down
Skies growing somber and beckoning blood
Is there any hope for us beyond these walls
Bittersweet, this night shall be, in eternal stone

My heart is surrounded
I’ll lay my weapons down
This battle’s just beginning
Standing on this mountain
I will surrender now
Today I’m giving in to you
