Call The Ships To Port

This song is by Cinderella Effect and appears on the album Pearls (2006).

Call the ships to port
(Covenant. Lyrics by Joakim Montelius)

A billion words ago the sailors disappeared
A story for the children to rock them back to sleep
A million burning books like torches in our hands
A fabric of ideals to decorate our homes

A thousand generations the soil on which we walk
A mountain of mistakes for us to climb for pleasure
A hundred clocks are ticking the line becomes a circle
Spin the wheel of fortune or learn to navigate

A choir full of longing will call our ships to port
The countless lonely voices like whispers in the dark
A choir full of longing will call our ships to port
The countless lonely voices like whispers in the dark

A second of reflection can take you to the moon
The slightest hesitation can bring you down in flames
A single spark of passion can change a man forever
A moment in a lifetime is all it takes to break him

A fraction of a heartbeat made us what we are
A brother and a sister for better or for worse
A billion words ago they sang a song of leaving
An echo from the chorus will call them back again

A choir full of longing will call our ships to port

The countless lonely voices like whispers in the dark
A choir full of longing will call our ships to port
The countless lonely voices like whispers in the dark

Tonight we light the fires
We call our ships to port
Tonight we walk on water
And tomorrow we'll be gone...
