he speaks to me in music.

Oh, Carl, you’ve done it again. Sending me music so perfect, I can’t help but believe.

“Across The Sea”

I see your face across the sea
You’re in the waves, surrounding me
I hear your voice call on the breeze
On this ship out on the ocean

Sailing across the sea on a big ship on the ocean
The moon is rising in the east the stars hang down around her
The bow is arrowed to the hearts of the ones we wish to come home to
But the newly lit night directs this flight singing the ocean road will guide you

I see your face across the sea
You’re in the waves, surrounding me
I hear your voice call on the breeze
On this ship out on the ocean

When I wake I’ll cast my anchor down and dive below
I’ll dive into my lover’s arms we’ll warm the ocean’s cold
Across the sea and to our home we’ll meet again so soon
You’ll be with me across the sea on this ship out on the ocean

I see your face across the sea
You’re in the waves, surrounding me
I hear your voice call on the breeze
On this ship out on the ocean.

I haven’t turned on music since The Avett Brothers, “Live and Die” song he sent me. But after an afternoon spent on the beach of the ocean, I turned on Pandora once more and this is the first (and only) song that played. Oh, sweet music. Carl’s favorite thing. I. Am. Blessed.
