Sail On

Sailed my whole life on bloodied seas
Sail on through the storm
Laughed in hard times, cried in easy
Taking it all back home

Walked through storms in shadowed valleys
(Sail on etc)
Asking questions that had no answers
(Taking it all etc)

Seen loved ones born, seen loved ones dying
Rocked with laughter, I've shook with crying

Been down and out, been high and mighty
Been a peacemaker, been a fighter

Sail on, Sail on
Sail on
Sail on, Sail on
Only a fool breaks their heart
For what has gone

Known real love and the joy of giving
Saw it die but I kept on living

Lived with love and lived without it
Still believe and I'll never doubt it

Sail on, Sail on
The hour of sorrow is the herald
Of the hope that is the dawn
Sail on, Sail on
Going home to where
I truly do belong

Sail on, Sail on
Don't waste your time in asking
Where the time you spent has gone
Sail on, Sail on
Only a fool breaks their heart
For what has gone
