Where The Sailors Go

Lyrics

She came home like a winter song
You know I believe she’s growing strong
Feeling like a soldier now
I guess she’d be alone
And waiting till the angels come
Looking for a manger
Holding out that wicked wind
Lord, she’s a friend

To get on board a train or two
You know it’s all a part of you
When truth is the master
Who takes you through tomorrow

So betting on a better plan
She takes ahold another hand
This time will she understand
He too is the traveler
All alone and waiting
She journeys on to sweeter dreams
With open arms and open heart
She too is the traveler

You get on board a train or two
Guess it’s all a part of you
Once she was a child I knew
Now she’s a lady

Well I see you dancing morning time
I see you singing evening rhyme
I see you playing in my mind
For I too am a traveler
And when will once again
It just be you and holy name
You call the keeper of the flame
For he too was a traveler

I feel my body rocking
Like an aspen tree in the summer wind
It’s come to climbing mountains again

In time you will be knocking
Well it takes my heart
Or at least a part
But our campfire
Won’t light this night forever

You see
Seasons change my love
You know sometimes rearrange my love
And just as we rise above
We jump on in again
Seasons change my love
You know sometimes it feels
So strange, my love
And just as we rise above
We slip on in again

I feel my heart shaking
Like an aspen leaf in the autumn wind
It’s come to naked branches
Our winter friend

In time it will be breaking away from you
What else can we do
Aah you know these mountains go on forever

You see
Seasons change my love
You know sometimes rearrange my love
And just as we rise above
We jump on in again
Seasons change my love
You know sometimes it feels
So strange, my love
And just as we rise above
We slip on in again

You

So lay down your weapons
The war is over
You don’t need to be steppin’ out
Just to show you can
It’s the same situation
You know you’re always welcome
So before you go out
And start makin’ all new plans
Baby well

You, you
Make the sun shine brighter
You, you
Turn the clouds away
Baby well
You, you
Ease this uneasy feeling
So before you go thinkin’ it’s over
Let the past slide over your shoulder
Look again
You’ll see we’ve grown older
In this love
It’s part of us now

You raise up the white flag
You sign the treaty
It won’t do us any good naw naw
If none of us survive
It’s the same situation
You know this love’s forever
So before you get out look again
You’ll see it’s all very much alive
Baby well

You, you
Make the sun shine brighter
You, you
Turn the clouds away
Baby well
You, you
Can ease this uneasy feeling
So before you go thinkin’ it’s over
Let the past slide over your shoulder
Look again
You’ll see we’ve grown older
In this love

Hey baby well
You, you
Make the sun shine brighter
You, you
Turn the clouds away
Baby well
You, you
Can ease this uneasy feeling
You, you
Turn the clouds away
Baby it’s you

Well I was taken back
When I saw the situation
It’s enough to make a grown man hide
I know it’s just an act
When you feel like imitation
Still we got this fire inside
We keep changing like the weather
Whether or not
We ever get together I know
We got this feeling deep between us
It runs cold, it runs hot
Sometimes we step back and watch it glow

We gotta work on it
If we want to get to someplace
Work on it everyday
Say now we work on it
Well it’s your place or my place
It don’t really matter these days

So you say you’re feeling funny
Like it’s all turning sour
Seems what is ain’t what it seems
And the bee ain’t sippin’ honey
When he’s sittin’ on the flower
Wait awhile you’ll taste your dreams
Maybe we should hold on
Like lovers and friends
And see this all through to the end
Life’s not always in a bubble
We have fun, we have trouble
That’s why I’m here to say again

Hey now we work on it
If we want to get to someplace
Work on it everyday
Say now we work on it
Well it’s your place or my place
I don’t see much difference these days

Every day we gotta work on it
Work on it
Every way we gotta work on it
Work on it

Father
You know I live here in this heart
And sometimes the sweetest part
Is when you come to me

Softly sometimes
Still you come to me
You make it all rhyme
Show me the crimes which are mine
Then we let them go

And in this heart I hold here in my hand
You know this one we pick apart
So I understand
Why we’re in between
So in between
Must be a sailors dream
There’s freedom in the wind
Your smile, your kiss and then
We set on sail again
Hey everybody

Sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Sail on so the sailor grows stronger
Every day
Every way

So winds take me where you may
<span style=”line-height: 1.5em;”>Through work and holiday
</span>We’ll caress as friends
Just to taste that salty air again
There’s still a hunger in here
It seems to draw us all near
Where we’re sailin’ to

So Father
You know I live here in this heart
And always the sweetest part
Is when you come to me
Softly
Still you come to me
You make it all rhyme
Expose the crimes which are mine
Then we watch them go
Hey everybody

Sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Sail on so the sailor grows stronger
Every day
Every way

Did we meet by chance
Or did someone guide the dance
You know, somewhere I’d believe it
Though I’ve never really seen it
So we’re in between
Here in this dream
Of everything we want to be

So we take our time
Seems all we own is time
And our star will find us
With all this time behind us
So it’s you and me
There lies the key
To everything we want to be

Well I’d love to take you
Where the wind blows
I’d love to take you out to sea
I’d love to take you to the who knows Mama
It’s where the sailors go

So we take that chance
It’s two magic fools in a dance
And our time has found us
With all these times behind us
There’s no more in between
Here in this dream
Of everything we want to be

I’d love to take you
Where the wind blows
I’d love to take you out to sea
I’d love to take you to the who knows Mama
It’s where the sailors go

So it’s you and me
There lies the key
To everything we want to be

I’d love to take you
Where the wind blows
I’d love to take you out to sea
I’d love to take you to the who knows Mama
It’s where the sailors go

I met a man as I was coming on in
He said son where are you going
And where have you been
And where are the locks of golden hair
She so fearlessly gave you
When did locks on the door
Suddenly save you

I met a child as I was heading on home
He said father please tell me
Why must you roam
I live in a heart who holds
Truth as his treasure
And true love needs naught
To taste of his pleasure

I met a lady who danced through the years
She said why do you grow cleansing
Hearts with your tears
I still see her smiling eyes
Whisper with laughter
I still feel her calling me
Though the years turned for us after

I met a man and he called me his friend
He said son where are you going
And where have you been
It seems like a long time
Since I’ve seen you there sittin’
Smiling and talking to me
By the fire and the kitten
There’s no place like home

You make the feeling right
Every day now and every night
You know what to do
Everytime it still comes back to you

I’m caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Of your love

You feed this appetite
Keep the boy home every night
And you know what to say
In you own very special way

I’m caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Of your love

You brought a light to love
I take my time no need to push and shove
And you make the feeling right
Every day
Every day and night

I’m caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Of your love
I’m caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Caught in the middle
Of your love

Where is Rebecca
She speak to me so soft
She say you be my father
I’ll use your love for my loft
Where is the angel
That took her by the hand
Flow through this man she said
He’ll help you understand

I spoke to the goddess
Who holds the key
She said I’d like to come
But just now I’m not free
Rebecca you and I will have to
Live in suspension
Is this dream a scheme
Or is it really our mission

So where is Rebecca
She come from the sea
Her heart’s an island
Her soul is set free
Speak to your mother
To see if her ship is in harm
Well is the calm she knows really
The eye of the storm

Where is Rebecca
She come from the sky
This lover of Jesus
Has really grown high
We all long to marry
Somewhere in our soul
But the changes have broke us down
And the story’s grown old

I spoke to the goddess
Who holds the key
She said I’d like to come
But just now I’m not free
Rebecca you and I will have to
Live in suspension
Is this dream a scheme
Or is it really our mission
So where is Rebecca

I’m only a guest
When your heart offers rest
To the singer who lives in this song
You see there never was choice
For the pull in his voice
Was part of the source all along
So we take on this child
To grow free and run wild
And sing a sweet song all her own
And we feel love best
As we lay here to rest
On alone

So you give and you take
Put your heart on a plate
It’s a game with the line thinly drawn
Soon you owe and expect
With your heart in a net
Always in search of the dawn
So we sit back awhile
To learn from this child
Who lives in a song all her own
And we feel love best
As we lay here to rest
On alone

I’m only a guest
When your heart offers rest
To the singer who lives in this song
See there never was a choice
For the pull in his voice
Was part of that source all along
So we set free this child
To grow old and run wild
To sing a sweet song all her own
We feel love best
As we lay here to rest
On alone
