A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing

Lyrics: Tom Marshall
Music: Trey Anastasio

First played by Phil Lesh & Friends in 2005 (with vocals by Al Schnier).

(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
A song I heard the ocean sing
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
Shining light in darkness deep
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
I pray the prayer into the tide
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
And both will save me in my sleep

For every season that I slide
(Sleep)
I prayer the prayer into the tide
(Sleep)
A shining light in darkness deep
(Sleep)
In my ten years before the night
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)

For every season that has passed
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
I lay my body o'er the side
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
A shining light in darkness deep
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
I pray the prayer into the tide

How can I answer questions I've known?
(Tide)
How can I answer questions I've known?
(Tide)
How can I answer questions I've known?
(Tide)
How can I answer questions I've known?
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)

A song I heard the ocean sing
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
A shining light in darkness deep
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
Ten years before the mass
(Run away, run away, run away, run away)
I heard the ocean sing
