Lyrics

Forty nights alone on the sea.
With the darkness washing over me.
Every night I sail on my own.
Crossin the ocean to my secret home.

While I sail this ocean of fright.
I find the seas empty to the night.
Well, well, I say hey, hey, hey, what do you see.
I going down to sail on a empty sea.
Well, I say hey, hey, hey, what do you know.
I gonna cross that empty ocean to the other shore.

Nights going darker, the moons almost gone.
Though I’m asleep I see all that’s going on.
I travel and travel don’t dare look back.
The ocean behind me, is waining to black.

Stare straight, and sail for ever on.
And know by the dawn the sea will be gone.

Well, well, I say hey, hey, hey, what do you see.
I going down to sail on a empty sea.
Well, I say hey, hey, hey, what do you know.
I gonna cross that empty ocean to the other shore.

Why am I sailing this ocean of fright.
Why am I on the seas to the night.
Well, well, I say hey, hey, hey, what do you see.
I going down to sail on a empty sea.
Well, I say hey, hey, hey, what do you know.
I gonna cross that empty ocean to the other shore.
