The last of man's great unchained beast lies lappin' at my door
The last of man's great unchained beast lies lappin' at my door
An' I'd be happy to give it what it wants
But I do know it would just ask for more

I search for you with every crest I ride
In every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through

I didn't mean to leave you
I unfurled my sail and the wind did blow
I didn't mean to leave you, Darlin'
I unfurled my sail and the wind did blow
Why? Why? Why? Why? Oh, why I did not drop my anchor?
Oh Lord, I will never know

I search for you with every crest I ride
In every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through

On the lee of the island I hear your voice deep inside the calm
On the lee of the island I hear your voice deep inside the calm
Whispering, "Baby, I'll be your delight, if you promise
To be my red sky tonight"

I search for you with every crest I ride
In every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through

In the storm you are my destination, in the port you are my storm
In the storm you are my destination, in the port you are my storm
But I would weather you my love, if you would be my guide
If you would be my stars in the skies above

I search for you with every crest I ride
In every trough I travel through
I search for you in every trough I travel through
