The Blue Flower Lyrics - "Angels On The Levee"

Hannah:        All ships that are sailing will come again to port
                     Speeding quietly to harbors
                     That wait for them to moor, again, just as before

Max & Hannah:    I am waiting in the crow’s nest,
                            With a moonless night in tow
                            My sailing hosts are tidy
                            A mystery, these peaceful ghosts
                            And the rituals they know

                            The angels on the levee are smiling out at me
                            Their patience is unfailing,
                            Even though they’ve seen me pass this way
                            So many times before

                            The angels on the levee are waiting there for me
                            I’m up in the crow’s nest
                            Trying to unwind the rope that lets me down below

                            All ships that are sailing will come again to port
                            Speeding quietly to harbors
                            That wait for them to moor, again, just as before
