O the waves crash in and the tide pulls out.
It's an angry sea but there is no doubt
That the lighthouse will keep shining out
To warn the lonely sailor,
And the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold
Through the sailor's bones to the sailor's soul
Till there's nothing left that he can hold
Except the rolling ocean.


But I am ready for the storm, yes sir, ready.
I am ready for the storm, I'm ready for the storm.

Give me mercy for my dreams
For every confrontation seems
To tell me what it really means
To be this lonely sailor,
But when the sky begins to clear
And the sun, it melts away my fear
I'll cry a silent weary tear
For those that need to love me.


But distance, it is no real friend
And time, it takes its time,
But you will find that in the end
It brings you me, the lonely sailor.
But when you take me by your side
You love me warm, you love me,
And I should have realized
I had no reason to be frightened.
