about

The inspiration for this song was a little rockpool near my grandmother's house on the Galician coast in north-west Spain, where I spent my childhood summers. After a 20-year gap, I went back in 2013 to find that unlike me, the rockpool hadn't changed a bit.

lyrics

Rockpool Blues

Swirling in the seashells
Jewels in the sun
Rippled reflections
Of a girl so young

The creatures glint and sparkle
And dart from side to side
Hiding in the shadows
Waiting for the tide

What’s your secret, little rockpool?
You never seen to age
I guess the tide just keeps on flushing those rockpool blues away

A million waves and moments since I felt the ocean spray
With my weathered, tired relection
I felt a pull today

Well the creatures glint and sparkle
And dart from side to side
My tiny little ocean
Where emotions coincide

What’s your secret, little rockpool?
You never seen to age
I guess the tide just keeps on flushing those rockpool blues away

In another million moments I’ll be old and grey
Forgive the introspection
Might not be another day

But the creatures glint and sparkle
And dart from side to side
My heart lives in the rockpool
Where the earth and sea collide

What’s your secret, little rockpool?
You never seen to age
I guess the tide just keeps on flushing those rockpool blues away

... little rockpool?
You never seen to age
Well I guess the tide keeps flushing those rockpool blues away
