This song is by Chris de Burgh and appears on the album At The End Of A Perfect Day (1977) and on the album Beautiful Dreams (1995).

Lady love, go back to sleep,
Dry the tears from your eyes,
But I cannot stay with thee,
Until the morning,
For the dawn is breaking,
And my ship is waiting for me,
And I must go,
But I'll be back, yes,
Before this year is over;
And we sailed across the sea,
Till we found America,
'Round the cape of storms,
We set our sails for home,
And when the sea was roaring,
And the lord I called,
To help my drowning men,
I saw the light, yes, the candle in your window ...
And I have brought you silver,
And I have brought you gold,
And spices from the indies in the hold;
I've seen ships on horizon,
That I'd swear were going down,
And now I know for certain,
The world is round,
I have seen, my eyes have seen.
Oh, one day says galileo,
A man will reach the sky,
And see the world completely,
From outside,
And gazing down from yonder,
On a world of blue and green,
He'll say with eyes of wonder,
I have seen, my eyes have seen,
My eyes have seen.
