"Sea Of Joy" as written by and Steve Winwood....
Following the shadows of the skies,
Or are they only figments of my eyes?
And I'm feeling close to when the race is run.
Waiting in our boats to set sail.
Sea of joy.

Once the door swings open into space,
And I'm already waiting in disguise.
Is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail.
Sea of joy.

Having trouble coming through,
Through this concrete blocks my view
And it's all because of you.

Oh, is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail.
Sea of joy.

Sea of joy.
Sea of joy.
Sailing free.
Sea of joy.

    General CommentThis song was actually written by Eric Clapton, I do believe.
    I love the violin track in this song.
    As to what it means, hmmm....Maybe he's blocking himself emotionally from being happy-giving someone else power over his happiness."A thorn between my eyes"+"Having trouble coming through, through this concrete blocks my view, and it's all because of you."
    I think its about fear of being vulnerable in love:all the allusions to "Waiting in our boats to set sail,sea of joy."
