(1983 Alan Horvath | BMI)

I can tell a story
Deeper than the blue, blue sea ...
Sail away ...
And I can sing of glory,
Knowing that my people are free ...
Samuel, stay.
There will come a time
You'll look to the tides ...
And I'll be looking for you ...
Oh, oh, ooh!

My eyes can see things far away;
The wounds will never heal ...
I've said all that I need to say;
The book is nearly sealed ...
And now it's time to take the road
That leads my flight to peace ...
Sam, I really hate to go,
But the time has come for me.

Now I can tell a story
Deeper than the blue, blue sea ...
Sail away ...
And I can sing of glory,
Knowing that my people are free ...
Samuel, stay.
There will come a time
You'll look to the tides ...
And I'll be looking for you ...
Oh, oh, ooh!

West of the moon
East of the sun
There's a place I long to be ...
Go tell your Rosie
The time has come
And I need your company ...
There's a ship that sails,
A light that shines,
And friends along the way ...
Let's journey together
One last time,
Down to the Grey Havens!

Now I can tell a story
Deeper than the blue, blue sea ...
Sail away ...
And I can sing of glory,
Knowing that my people are free ...
Sam, you will stay;
There will come a time
You'll look to the tides ...
And I'll be looking for you ...
Oh, oh, ooh!
