Ghost of The Navigator Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I have sailed to many lands, now I make my final journey
On the bow I stand, west is where I go
Through the night I plough, still my heart, calculate and pray
As the compass swings, my will is strong, I will not be led astray

Mysteries of time clouds that hide the sun
But I know, and I know and I know

I see the ghosts of navigators but they are lost
As they sail into the sunset they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accusing emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

Take my heart and set it free, carried forward by the waves
Nowhere left to run, navigator's son, chasing rainbows all my days
Where I go I do not know, I only know the place I've been
Dreams they come and go, ever shall be so, nothings real until you feel

I steer between the crashing rocks, the sirens call my name
Lash my hands onto the helm, blood surging with the strain
I will not fail now sunrise comes the darkness left behind
For eternity I follow on there is no other way

Mysteries of time clouds that hide the sun
But I know, and I know and I know

I see the ghosts of navigators but they are lost
As they sail into the sunset they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accusing emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

Take my heart and set it free, carried forward by the waves
Nowhere left to run, navigator's son, chasing rainbows all my days
Where I go I do not know, I only know the place I've been
Dreams they come and go, ever shall be so, nothings real until you feel

I see the ghosts of navigators but they are lost
As they sail into the sunset they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accusing emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

Take my heart and set it free, carried forward by the waves
Nowhere left to run, navigator's son, chasing rainbows all my days
Where I go I do not know, I only know the place I've been
Dreams they come and go, ever shall be so, nothings real until you feel
