  • Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
    In the hills and highlands
    I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
    And awake in your mouth

    Hello Seattle, I am a manta-ray
    Deep beneath the blue waves
    I'll crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
    And construct my summer home

    Hello Seattle, I am the crescent moon
    Shining down on your face
    I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
    And descend inside of you

    Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
    Feeling warm in your sand
    I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
    Rolling in the evening breeze

    Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
    On the docks and your boats
    I sail above your inlets and interstates
    Through the rain and open wind

    Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
    Throwing beams of bright lights
    Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
    Taking heed from everyone

    Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
    In the hills and highlands
    I fall asleep in hospital parking lots

    Take me above your light
    Carry me through the night
    Hold me secure in flight
    Sing me to sleep tonight

    Take me above your light
    Carry me through the night
    Hold me secure in flight
    Sing me to sleep tonight Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG
