lyrics

It was 50 years ago Anne Stanton made that dive,
On that night she saved her life, this was no suicide
The summer sky was heavy as she climbed up high
Her heart was heavy, but the moon shone so bright

Alone against the sky, she drew a breath and centered every energy
on leaning out and pushing off the edge
She was pushing off the edge

And falling fast she felt no fear, her mind was closed to any
but the feeling of her body bending,
muscles taut, arms outstretched

So claiming her decision, she split the surface sweetly,
She swam back to the shoreline and was gone
I wish I had that fortitude, I wish I had that vision,
As claiming her decision, she dove
She was claiming her decision to go

It was 50 years ago, that Anne made that dive,
I’m still trying
