lyrics

Sail on Sweet Soul



Down beside these rocks where waves crash like giants

Sits a man with his thoughts and a smile

Just a song in his heart and a ghost in his mind

A lifetime of memories on trial



Well the blue of his eyes matches that of the sea

Where he knew he always belonged

And he faces the wind that is whipping like sin

Like a king he takes his crown



And he says let these squalls please carry me away

Let my life be that of a hurricane

Oh I’m stepping out of line

Just to leave it all behind

So say a prayer for me as I drift out to sea

I’m leaving here tonight



Well if I should find your good graces in time

If I could right what I’ve done wrong

I’d change all your days in so many ways

To feel like an old familiar song

But the past is the past and the tides they all change

We all must float along

So I’ll face the wind that is whipping like sin

Sail on sweet soul sail on



And he says let these squalls please carry me away

Let my life be that of a hurricane

Oh I’m stepping out of line

Just to leave it all behind

So say a prayer for me as I drift out to sea

I’m leaving here tonight
