Waves

Sea in motion, wind has filled my sails
Full of power and direction too
As if I had a job to do

Don't I know coldness in this gale?
And don't I need to get my mind off you
Or lose myself in ocean blue

And sail around this ocean in a circle
Without measuring my pace
While this crescent of a moon is surely calling
For the power of my faith

Sing to me another siren song
With a melody from in this sea
The wind and waves for harmony

You don't know me yet you call my name
I can hear it on the ocean breeze
If ever it was meant for me

To sail around this ocean in a circle
Without measuring my pace
While crescent of a moon is surely calling
For the power of my faith

And the waves, oh they spray me down
As if water was the only sound
And I was meant to drown in their song
I can hear your flute, as I gaze into the water blue
But I will not go down for long

Years ago or in another life
There was something of the sea in me
Ever flowing, ever free

Anyway, I should have known by now
That it's time for me to change my ways
Or seek my truth beneath the waves

And sail around this ocean in a circle 
Without measuring my pace
Oh to never know the answer to my question
Would not be a lonely fate

And the waves, oh they spray me down
As if water was the only sound
And I was meant to drown in their song
I can hear your flute, as I gaze into the water blue
But I will not go down for long
I will not go down for long
