Down to the sea

Plaatsingsdatum: 23-nov-2011 15:27:26

Now the anchors aweigh and the ports far behind

The dolphins are playing in the foam

The mainsail is hoisted and we' re running free

And there's a strong breeze that' s bringing me home

I've been so long away scarce remember the day

When we parted you stood on the shore

And the tears that were shed and things left unsaid

And my vow i'd be sailor no more


Down to the sea once again

Down to the sea once again

There' s no other place that I' d rather be

A’II go down to the sea once again

As a boy I would dream of pirates and ships

Old galleons and I'd be first mate

We'd find islands with treasure of Spanish doubloons

And silver and pieces of eight

At the wharves I would watch the tall ships leave the docks

For places and adventures unknown

And I knew in my heart as soon as I could

I would join them when I left my home


Now I' m no longer at sea and my time it is spent

Drinking in bars by the quay

Telling stories or listening to other old sats

Reminiscing how I thought things would be.

Now my days they are empty but my heart it is full.

Of the joys and sorrows we knew

Of the ports that we sailed to

And people we met

And the memory of my promise to you
