Songs about the sea. I was originally gonna call it 'Sea-n-gulls' but thought that might be a bad idea...

Recorded by me and Stephen Cope.
Beautiful photography by Sarah Callies: www.flickr.com/photos/_sarah_anne_/ And unfortunately had to chop her photograph a bit. Make sure you look at the originals.
Shane Duarte made hefty contributions to 'Counting Seasons' and guided the boat of a song with his rolling waves.

Track Name: Ship in a Bottle
Honey, I know you're not where you want to be
Always dreaming about leaving for the sea
Just don't forget about me

I'm building a ship in a bottle
To keep you on the shore
I'm building a ship in a bottle
To keep you in my arms
To keep you in my arms

Darling, I know I can't give you what you need
Always someone else, you're trying to break free
God I wish it were me

I'm building a ship in a bottle
To keep you on the shore
I'm building a ship in a bottle
To keep you in my arms
To keep you in my arms

Honey, I know you're not where you want to be
Track Name: Counting Seasons
The windy city sent me east
I lost my bags and couldn't feel my feet
The New York coast called quietly
I glimpsed your ghost in the shimmering streets

I'm visiting cities I swear I've seen
Hoping you'll find me finally
And I'm counting the seas and the seasons

Baltimore had an empty shore
All alone, I looked for more
And in Georgia, I lost your trail
So I packed my bags and puked and knew I'd failed

I'm visiting cities I swear I've seen
Hoping you'll find me finally
And I'm counting the seas and the seasons
