The Sailor’s Rain

Album: Speaking The Unknown (2013)

I’m unsinkable
Now let the water rise
I won’t drown

His anchor has been out at sea for years
the deep blue has been a home more than a trap
It has seen all of his smiles and all of his tears
There’s nowhere a broken compass cannot lead

I’m unsinkable
I am unsinkable
Now let the water rise
I won’t drown

With only the stars to guide him home
He let the ship drift on his own
He let it drift away
He felt no need to come back home
He’s lost at sea

He felt no need to come back home
No!

With time, the sky turned grey
The swell got deeper and the water colder
His ship to the winds was a prey

And seeing in the distance
The rays of sun he was hoping for
He knew the days would get better

I’m unsinkable
I am unsinkable
Now let the water rise
No, I won’t drown
