(Watching the) Harbour Lights

I've been a salt sailor
For many's the long year,
And through many a morning,
My ship I did steer
But now I'm returning
Once more to the shore
No more I'll go a sailing..
No more I'll go a sailing..

Watching the harbour lights
From the quayside
Reflect off the water in the warm evening tide
Calm lie the fishing boats
Home from the sea,
As bathed in the moonlight
My dreams are following me.

Storms I would fear not,
All angers subside
To the wide elemental
The stars as my guide,
Yet tossed like a leaf
I've a mind still to be
And feel the salt spray in my dreaming..
And feel the salt spray in my dreaming..

Watching the harbour lights..

Feet on terra firma
I thought I might drown,
And those dandelion roots
I never put down,
But I'll drag these old bones
Once more down to the pier
And take in the smell of the ocean.
And take in the smell of the ocean.

Watching the harbour lights....
