Candlelight dies at the window
And the night wind blows soft from the sea
Though I lie in your arms, I'm a thousand miles away
On the waves sailing fast, sailing free

[Chorus]
Now I'm bound for the heart of the ocean
I'm riding the sea in my soul
In the dark and the deep she will rock me to sleep
Down below, where the black waters roll

When the sea birds cry out in the morning
And the sun lays it's kiss on the sand
I'll be drawn to the shore like so many times before
As I long to be far from the land
