lyrics

Daylight shines on the horizon
What a day to be out at sea
You and I we had our vessel
Sailing to whatever port we'd reach

Then winds they turned we lost direction
Where had we been, where should we be?
Capsized in our own confusion
Mutiny I did not foresee

Well I prefer those days
When you used to come my way
With arms open wide
Saying come to me my love

Now it seems those days are over
That ships sailing far from the shore
You set on your own course now
I am in the belly of a whale

Well I prefer those days
When you used to come my way
With arms open wide
Saying come to me my love
I want you by my side
Don't ever leave darlin'
I need your warmth at night

Should I chase you should I follow
Think I'll just stay on the beach
Seems that I have lost my compass
You always were true north to me

Now it seems your ship is sailing
Further than I could ever reach
Daylight falls on the horizon
What a day to be out at sea
