Lyricist:    Composer:

We could almost see the distant shore
When my little sweetheart jumped overboard
I threw a line blind into the sea
But she was free
To drift on

The sea is calm the night after the storm
But i know the empty rain awaits at every turn
I fear i had a love and now it's gone
To find new shelter

And i'm building ships to carry me home
Back to where i sailed from
Back to the places i hurt

The rhythm of the rocking is unknown
It takes a while to get used to the motion
I'm moving slowly but i'm full of anger
That there's no one to blame
It's a cruel game

And i'm building ships to carry me home
Back to where i sailed from
Back to the places i...
Now i'm building ships to sail on
Back to where i sailed from
Back to the places i hurt

I fear i had and love and now it's gone
I fear i had and love and now it's gone
To find new shelter
To find new shelter
