lyrics

The Sailor & The Sea
Music by Grahame Lesh & Connor O’Sullivan
Lyrics by Grahame Lesh & Elliott Peck

It was just becoming morning
The shadows faded fast against the light
I could see your trepidation
Against the hope that brightened in my eyes
It was just another journey
Never too far from the comfort of your arms
Each return is shorter than the last
Before I’m back out chasing stars

I won’t run when I should be diving deep
Let the current lay me down to sleep
When I’m gone away don’t weep for me
For even a drowning sailor loves the sea

I’ve been left with naught but memories
To give me company through the days
Being left at home can make one
Think hard about the ways to run away
Even in my darkest moments
I know we had no choice at all
Hoping from a distance
That you’ll still answer when I call

I won’t run when I should be diving deep
Let the current lay me down to sleep
I won’t go where you can’t follow me
For even a drowning sailor loves the sea

Keep a light in the window for now
When the stars hide behind clouds
And I won’t wander too far anymore
You’re the compass that leads me to shore
