Sea Wolf - The Violet Hour

Your lips are nettles
Your tongue is wine
You're laughter's liquid
But your body's pine

You love all sailors
But hate the beach
You say "Come touch me"
But you're always out of reach

In the dark you tell me of a flower
That only blooms in the violet hour

Your arms are lovely
Yellow and rose
Your back's a meadow
Covered in snow

Your eyes are thistles
And have half grapes
You breathe your sweet breath
And have me wait

In the dark you tell me of a flower
That only blooms in the violet hour

I turn the lights out
I clean the sheets
You change the station
Turn up the heat

And now you're sitting
Upon your chair
You've got me tangled up
Inside your beautiful black hair

In the dark you tell me of a flower
That only blooms in the violet hour

In the dark you tell me of a flower
That only blooms in the violet hour

In the dark you tell me of a flower
That only blooms in the violet hour

In the dark you tell me of a flower
That only blooms in the violet hour

This an unreleased song by Sea Wolf called "The Violet Hour" for the New Moon Soundtrack in stores and online October 16th. Sea Wolf describes themselves in a Vanity Fair interview as a folk-rock band with "sea-shanty instrumentation." Alex Brown Church of Sea Wolf told Vanity Fair that he wrote the song about a girl who is interested in him, but she is somewhat distant and aloof. He is unsure whether she is leading him on or not, and adds a sexy attitude to the Soundtrack. The sound is up-beat, but the lyrics give a dark and steamy tone. The song is said to be played in the movie during a house-party scene. This much anticipated album with big names such as Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Death Cab For Cutie, and The Killers are also accompanied with indie-rock gems Bon Iver, St. Vincent, Lykke Li, and Grizzly Bear. This genius collaboration of small and large indie-rock acts make this album reach the Top 10 albums on iTunes.
