WINNER, 2012 Discoveries Songwriting Competition

lyrics

mama's favorite dress of mine had birds all over
i wore it every Sunday 'til i got older
and i reached away for something there
that i could taste in the air

put it all in a little black box
hide it on the floor of the sea
only leave behind you
the waves and speed

i was gone for 30 days and 20 hours
before i saw the water close and tried to call the towers
and i opened up my window then
and gave my letters to the wind

put it all in a little black box
hide it on the floor of the sea
only leave behind you
the waves and speed

i wasn't quite sure where i was going
i knew that i'd know when i was there
and i wouldn't let anybody
keep it away from me again
