about

Salt is a dreamy alt-folk song evoking the ritualistic powers of water, fire, earth, and air as they meet at the edge of the sea. The first single off Hawthorn's debut LP Spun Open, it is also the first co-write for Hawthorn members Taylor and Heather, as evidenced by the richly intertwining vocal lines and lyrics.

lyrics

in your dreams of the salt and waves
do you see me there
in your poems and your beach glass home
do you see me there

in the harbor, wooden boats
crystallize and crash
they break together on their own
murmurs of the past

wild abandoned rituals
burning high in the wind
where the ocean takes it all
to the ash, to the sand

waterfalls on silent skin
in the cloudy cove
build a driftwood castle hall
memories unfold

in the fires of cliffs and bones
bear the stirring truth
glowing coals and black blood stones
on the open shoreline

wild abandoned rituals
burning high in the wind
where the ocean takes it all
to the ash, to the sand

in your dreams of the salt and waves
do you see me there
in your poems and your beach glass home
do you see me there
