Chipped Fingernails

I went outside
and I didn’t even wear a coat
so this is the song that I wrote
when I didn’t have a thing to say.

Chipped fingernails
snag on my dirty jeans.
This time last year
I almost quit the scene.

When I arrive,
I plug in and play
and I begin my day.
I repeat one and two
‘cause that is what I do,
and every now and then I stop
when I’m thinking about what to say,
when I’m dreaming about what to sing,
when I’m thinking about what to say.

A bird calls out,
I key into my house
and open up my mouth
‘Til I go north or south,
that’s what I’ll crow about.
I repeat one and two
‘cause that is what I do
and every now and then I...
backward and forward I go
turn over the page,
begin again.

That’s what I do when I’m transforming (words).

Tide’s coming in and the river wants to turn me around
The tide’s coming in and the river wants to turn me around
Says right side up is upside down
I say “I know where I’m going by the ocean’s sound.”
The tide’s coming in and the river wants to turn me around

Sun’s going down and the river wants to turn me around
Oh the sun’s going down and the river wants to turn me around
Says “slow down girl, it’ll be dark soon”
I say “I’m keeping my course, gonna follow the moon.”
The sun’s going down and the river wants to turn me around

Close to the ocean, the river wants to turn me around
I’m close to the ocean, the river wants to turn me around
I say “Your sons are stirring up filthy water,
I’m going home, I’m the Ocean’s daughter.”
Close to the ocean, the river wants to turn me around
