If you go
far away
I would grow
sails or wings
to cross the deep
above or underneath

If the eastern winds
blow kind across
the empty space
between my arms
I'll make believe them
feathers to
be light enough
to fly to you

And if no vessel
roams that way,
I could set out
on sails and dreams
to cross the deep
on frail winds of sleep
and air
and gather you there

For the sight of water
has me long
to be swallowed up
and sailed out
in the body of
a whale to
be fast enough
to sail to you

    My InterpretationThis song seems pretty straight-forward in its lyrics,
    But this is what I got out of it.

    The song is about a special someone to the person singing this song.
    He will try anything to find and be with the one he loves.

    The eastern winds, vessel, water, and whale are symbolism for obstacles he is willing to overcome to be able to find his love. He will try to get past these, even if it leads to his death.

    Sounds like true dedication to me. Wonderful, yet simple, song.
