LYRICS
I used to sell tents by the corner of the sea
A blue eyed girl would buy them from me
I’d see her every day in the sheen of the sun
As white as the glow from a skeleton

Thirteen Starfish and 7 Jars
You’re looking for a face on the belly of the: (you’re looking for a face) on the belly of the crab

I asked her one day where was her home
she sighed and said I live alone
She pointed at a ship that sailed away
the clouds all cracked and the sky went gray

Thirteen Starfish and 7 Jars
You’re looking for a face on the belly of the : (you’re looking for a face) on the belly of the crab

she skipped away with a trail in the sand
rolling the waves with a twist of her hand
she drifted away as the tide grew near
when the sun set she disappeared
