Same tide that drew me closer
Pushed me far away
I held the hand that lit the dark night
Then with nothing I could say

I was on the outside
I was waiting for a sign
I set a course for a hidden island
That lay beyond the deceiving silence

I was on the dark side
I was sailing towards the light
I made my way through a sea of sirens
A pirate's life full of worthless diamonds

I try and listen to the music when the ocean breathes
Wish that I could build a bridge across the sea
And the secrets of the moonlight would carry me
Where the sun meets the water and the sky breaks free
That's where I'll be

Same sign that drew me closer
Jealous howling wind
The memory of the safest shoreline
Never find again

I was on the outside
I was waiting for the right
I fought my way through a sea of violence
But you never heard me scream in silence

I was on the dark side
I was sailing through the night
I'm playing cards at the devil's table
I lost my hand to a hand-less table

Every time I hear the music when the ocean breathes
Make me wish that I could build a bridge across the sea
And the secrets of the moonlight would carry me
Where the sun meets the water and the sky breaks free
Is that where you'll be?

I was on the outside
I was waiting for a sign
I set a course for a hidden island
That lay beyond the deceiving silence

Every time I hear the music when the ocean breathes
Make me wish that I could build a bridge across the sea
And the secrets of the moonlight would carry me
Where the sun meets the water and the sky breaks free

I'll be on the outside
Far beyond the rising tide
Where you'll be searching far and wide
For what you lost along the ride
When you sail to find me
Let the wind remind thee
Of a shipwrecked sailor that was saved by a maiden
And sent out to sea

That's where I'll be
A million, million miles away
Sea dreamer till my dying day
