Sail My Vessel Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

You know a dream is like a river
Ever changing as it flows
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes

Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores and

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky

I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
Has now become today

So don't you sit upon the shoreline
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide, yes

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky

I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

There's bound to be rough waters
And I know I'll take some falls
But with the good Lord, as my captain
I can make it through them all, yes

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky

I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
'Til the river runs dry
