Oh in this day
Show me the ocean
When shall i see the sea?

May this day
Set me in motion
I ought to be on my way

We were there
We were sailing on the Terra Nova
Sailing for the setting sun
Sailing for the new horizon

May this day
Show me an ocean
I ought to be on my way

Ought to be on my way right now
Stepping on the boat
With a lump in my throat
On my way right now

I got a letter from a dear friend of mine
Story of a spirits well awakening
She spoke of her love returning in time
She let me know that she'd be waiting

I should be on my way by now
Walking cross the floor
Reaching for the door
On my way by now

But here I sit
Country fool that I am
Elbow on my knee
And my chin in my hand
My mind in the gutter
And my eye on the street
Holed up in a cave of concrete

And I ought to be on my way right now
Packin' my things
While the telephone rings
On my way right now

I miss my lovely mother
And i love my lonely father
I know I owe my brothers
One thing and another
I hear my sister singing

I ought to be on my way right now
Moving cross the land
With my heart in my hand
On my way By now

Ought to be on my way by now

Oh in this day
Set me in motion
Ought to be on my way

Out to the west of Lambert's Cove
There is a sail out in the sun
And I'm on board though very small
I've come home to stop yearning

Burn off the haze around the shore
Turn off the crazy way I feel
I'll stay away from you no more
I've come home to stop yearning
