lyrics

Away on a silent sea
Cries soothed like a child’s
To prayers and silences
Out on the sway of the sea
Music in the stilling night
“Nearer My God, to Thee”

Afloat, adrift, alone
In the dark depth of sky
An open road of receding red lights
The moon sails by, like the years
Each step takes me away
Nearer, my heart, ever nearer

You fill my thoughts
You fill my sails
Music on a silent sea of doubt
This heart is truer than the lies I’ve told you
This heart we’ve both tried to figure out
Away at the edge of this boundless sky
You sleep
Out of harm, out of view
Someday I will return
Nearer, my love, to you
Someday soon I’ll take my first steps back
Nearer, my love, to you
