Polaris is a love song, but it's a love song with a tinge of sadness. A love song for a lover turned best friend. After over a decade together, Joe and Gem of Deepsea Lights broke up during the Covid-19 pandemic. Gem had been through an epic and (ultimately unsuccessful) sexual assault court case, and the stress of the times drove them apart as lovers, but kept them friends. This is Gem's song to Joe. She wrote it during one of the darkest times in her life and it's a thank you. Enjoy xx


Verse 1

Moving forwards,
Moving backwards
Travelling always to the start
Mossy rocks and hidden pathways
Movements in and movements out


I have a forest x 3
Around my heart

Verse 2

A broken heart is where they landed,
Fallen seeds on fertile soil
My voice it rings across the forest
And echoes on a little while


I have a forest x 3
Around my heart


When the world overwhelms me
And I feel I can’t go on
You’re right there beside me
In the forest of my heart

Verse 3

Understanding and confusion,
You’re always there with a smile
Moments happy, moments painful
I’m glad you chose to stay a while


Be the north star X3
For my soul

Be a bright star x2
For my soul
