Mariner's Song
(Michael Timmins )

The last of man's great unchained beasts
lies lapping at my door
The last of man's great unchained beasts
lies lapping at my door
I would give it what it wants, but I do know,
it would just ask for more.

I search for you with every crest I ride
in every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through.

I didn't mean to leave you,
I unfurled my sail and the wind did blow
I didn't mean to leave you, darling,
I unfurled my sail and the wind did blow
Why why why why why, oh why I did not drop my anchor,
Oh Lord, I will never know.

I search for you with every crest I ride
in every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through.

On the lee of the island I hear your voice
deep inside the calm
On the lee of the island I hear your voice
deep inside the calm
Whispering baby, I'll be your delight, if you promise
to be my red sky tonight.

I search for you with every crest I ride
in every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through.

In the storm you are my destination
in the port you are my storm
In the storm you are my destination
in the port you are my storm
But I would weather you my love, if you would be my guide,
if you would be my stars in the sky tonight.
I search for you with every crest I ride
in every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through.
