If you're driftin' on an empty ocean
With no wind to fill your sail,
The future, your horizon,
It's like searchin' for the Holy Grail.
You feel there's no tomorrow,
As you look into the water below.
It's only your reflection,
And you still ain't got no place to go.

Time will show,
When, I don't know.

Sail away tomorrow,
Sailin' far away.
To find it steal or borrow.
