mactheturk Songs about the lure of the sea. (25) Lyr Add: Come Away to Sea (Wilcox)^^ 03 Jul 00


In the song "Come Away To Sea", by David Wilcox an analogy is made between music and the wind. The guitar is a simple craft that can sail our heart.

COME AWAY TO SEA
(David Wilcox)

The wind is right for sailing
the tide is right to go
So come away to sea with me
There's things that you should know

So let your heart sail with me
We'll cast away from town
And we'll sail away on music
Inside this simple sound

This simple craft I play upon
Is made from wooden parts
It's never sailed the ocean
But it sure can sail my heart

And if you feel the music
then we've raised another sail
The ocean wraps this world around
The wind will never fail

Sail around this sound
Far away from shore
Come away to sea with me
Sail your heart once more
