​Looking For A Platform

This song is by Abel Ganz and appears on the album Shooting Albatross (2008).

I danced myself into a frenzy at the old Community Hall
'Neath star filled skies I staggered along the harbour wall
The distant mountains 'cross the bay like sleeping giants lay
And I looked towards approaching dawn, and wished that I could stay

Warm voices drifted from the decks and lingered in the air
Fine malts, fond recollections on a night without care
The sheets were blowing on the masts making music of their own
And I looked towards approaching dawn and wished I weren't alone

Round and round and round
Round and round and round
Looking for a platform

Everybody remembers where you were when your boat comes in
From the troubled sea, into your heart
In the comfort zone of your harbour walls
You're not alone

Round and round and round
Round and round and round
Looking for a platform

Ebb and flow of the spring tide, lulled by the sirens' song,
You're becalmed again, no more journeys end
Cast adrift on the sea of your distant dreams
You're not alone

Round and round and round
Round and round and round
Still looking for a platform

Some people search for a life time, never find what they're looking for
And they cannot see, wood from the trees
When you're on your knees
You're not alone

Old sailors smile a knowing smile and lead right through the storm
And navigate the channels that bring us safely home
But ordinary mortals would risk it all
To find a way to be at one with all
