Lyrics

Got out of town on a boat Going to Southern islands Sailing a reach before a following sea She was making for the Trades on the outside And the downhill run to Papeete

Off the wind on this heading Lie the Marquesas We got eighty feet of the waterline Nicely making way In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away (Think about) think about How many times I have fallen Spirits are using me Larger voices calling What heaven brought you and me Cannot be forgotten (I've been around the world) I have been around the world (Looking) looking for that woman-girl (Who knows she knows) Who knows love can endure And you know it will When you see the Southern Cross For the first time You understand now Why you came this way Cause the truth you might be Running from is so small But it's as big as the promise The promise of a coming day So, I'm sailing for tomorrow My dreams are a dying And my love is an anchor tied to you Tied with a silver chain I have my ship and All her flags are a flying She is all that I have left And music is her name (Think about) think about How many times I have fallen Spirits are using me Larger voices calling What heaven brought you and me Cannot be forgotten (I've been around the world) I have been around the world (Looking) looking for that woman-girl Who knows love can endure And you know it will And you know it will So we cheated and We lied and we tested And we never failed to fail It was the easiest thing to do You will survive being bested Somebody fine will come along Make me forget about loving you In the Southern Cross
