Track Name: Esbern Snare - Anchorage
Taken to the east when I was young. Carved by the mountains, we filled our lungs. But it's hard to breathe deeply when it's all so close and it's all that you've known. You've lost all control, now let’s see where you go. Tell me, ocean, where do I come from? Because your other side has kept me for so long. And it's hard to be far from the places you've grown, but this place it was home. You've lost all control to the sails of your boat. I know it's not mine, but I'm reaching for time. This sea's always changing, let’s anchor our aging. Oh, God, it's too soon, when I settle you move. I'm scared with each year, I'll forget what was here. If homesickness hurts, then I'm aching like hell.
