Dedicated to all our children, in honor of sweet Eve, who at 3 years old pulled through a terrible accident with such grace and forgiveness.

Erin Ivey's new single "Anchor" is a thematic departure from earlier work, though a stylistic return to dreamy folk-pop, with sparse instrumentation and signature harmonies.

Would you let me be your anchor
Would you let me be your stepping stone
No I don't have all the answers
But I don't want you to ever feel alone

When you're far out on the water
When your sights are on a distant shore
I'll set out the stars to guide you
I'll set out the wind to carry you along

So you find your way back home

All I want is just to love you
All I want is just to watch you grow
See the little light inside you
See it shine on everyone you know

There's a peace when you are sleeping
There's a joy in waking every day
There's a truth in every moment
There's an emptiness whenever you're away

But I know you'll find you're way back home
