OCEAN DEEP

I'M FEELING LIKE A CAPTAIN WITH NO HULL BENEATH MY DECK
WAVES ARE POUNDING MY PROUD SHIP TO A WRECK
THE SONGS OF THE SIRENS ARE STILL RINGING IN MY EARS
I'M A WEATHER WORN SAILOR FEELING HIS YEARS

I TURNED MY BACK ON FATE BUT I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH SAY
YOU CAN'T IGNORE THE WEATHER WHEN IT'S BLOWING YOU AWAY
SO I THREW OUT A LIFELINE AND PRAYED THAT IT WOULD HOLD
AND I WAITED FOR THE STORM TO GO

OCEAN DEEP, TIME AND TIDE WON'T LET A SAILOR SLEEP
OCEAN NEVER ENDS, LIKE THE TIDE, I'LL ALWAYS ROLL OUT AGAIN

ON THE DISTANT HORIZON THERE'S A GOLDEN BEACH
A HAVEN FOR SAILORS ALWAYS OUT OF MY REACH
AS LONG AS THERE'S AN OCEAN AND A STRONG STEADY WIND
I'LL SAIL THE SEA FOREVER NO LAND CAN LOCK ME IN
