Twenty-six years, twenty-six years
My sword, blackberries
Twenty-six years, twenty-six years
Promise, dignity
Your heart and leg
My arm and leg
Two rings, aging hands
My skin, sun, my lost days
Cup of tea, salt water
And a spit of land

This is, I am
So beautiful
And fierce
This is violence
And holy words

The sunset
And the steel sea
All the insects
All the birds
Fresh letters, rain over me
Bed with covers turned
I was born, I was born to
I was born tomorrow
I was born, I was born to
Dream, to love you

This is, I am
So beautiful
And fierce
This is violence
And holy words

And I swear fealty
To smile beyond dignity
To be kissed and salted
By love extreme

Twenty-six years, twenty-six years
Wooden cross, tragedy
Twenty-six years, twenty-six years
Same amount, victory
I was born, I was born to
I was born tomorrow
I was born, I was born to
Love you

This is, I am
So beautiful
And fierce
This is violence
And holy words

And I swear fealty
To smile beyond dignity
To be kissed and salted
To be kissed and salted
Oh, to kiss and be salted
By love extreme
