Pulled from one of our more recent issues is this week’s vintage piece from musician Robby Baier that’s sure to be easy on your ears. Appearing previously in DB 18, Baier’s song, “Anchorage” uses nautical metaphors to carry listeners away on the tide of his lyrics, accompanied by the soft swells and dips of his guitar.
“Sailing an ocean of you, your spray is on my skin
and the flags on my mast are flying high again.
And my sailors are tired; I should search the view for shores,
but up there on deck they’ve been a-dance between the oars,
sailing an ocean of you…”
