lyrics

Her sails are red like the dawn
And her hull is as the grey sea
On which she sails.

She comes about and heads toward land
For another glimpse of what could have been
If she’d stayed awhile and fit right in

Had she never, no not ever, chosen the wild sea.

And as she draws near to land
It reaches out to take her in
And there to hold.

And many people living there
Are singing songs of deep despair
As they struggle in a self-made snare

And they’re never, no not ever, finding the wild sea.

And there’s no fresh breeze upon this land
Just choking smog and dying wind
But there’s chains of gold.

And silver dreams are near at hand
If you’ll just work hard for the man
And play it safe as best you can

And don’t ever, no never, look toward the wild sea.

Her sails are red like the dawn
And her hull is as the grey sea
On which she sails.

She comes about and leaves the land
Sheets out and fills her sail
‘Cause she knows there’s freedom in the gale

And she’s never, no not ever, leaving the wild sea.
