I see your face across the sea
You’re in the waves, surrounding me
I hear your voice call on the breeze
On this ship out on the ocean

Sailing across the sea on a big ship on the ocean
The moon is rising in the east the stars hang down around her
The bow is arrowed to the hearts of the ones we wish to come home to
But the newly lit night directs this flight singing the ocean road will guide you

I see your face across the sea
You’re in the waves, surrounding me
I hear your voice call on the breeze
On this ship out on the ocean

When I wake I’ll cast my anchor down and dive below
I’ll dive into my lover’s arms we’ll warm the ocean’s cold
Across the sea and to our home we’ll meet again so soon
You’ll be with me across the sea on this ship out on the ocean

I see your face across the sea
You’re in the waves, surrounding me
I hear your voice call on the breeze
On this ship out on the ocean

    My InterpretationThis song is full of romantic ideas about coming to the "New World", behind family gone before. The journey is terrifying but beautiful because stars and love. How much hope is too much hope? When does fear win out over hope? This is a tender song / kind warning to everyone who is afraid of expectations.
