lyrics

TEAR DOWN THE SAILS

Tear down the sails
I won't be sailing anymore
Tear down the sails
I won't be sailing anymore

With my heart upon the ocean wide
And my eyes upon the distant bay
I'm returning now before the tide

Rocks tumbling down
The mountain I climb in my dreams
Rocks tumbling down
The mountain I climb in my dreams

With my heart upon the ocean wide
And my eyes upon the distant bay
I'm returning now before the tide
With the evening light
Lighting up my way

Time's lullaby
Its echo whispering on the waves
Time's lullaby
Its echo whispering on the waves

With my heart upon the ocean wide
And my eyes upon the distant bay
I'm returning now before the tide
With the evening light
Lighting up my way

Tear down the sails
I won't be sailing anymore
Tear down the sails
I won't be sailing anymore
