There was a man whose love was the ocean,
always calling him back to gaze from the shore,
was it really so long with his brothers beside him,
sailed for the east to greet the new dawn.

and he longed for the kiss of the salt laced breeze
and knew he would always return
his heart was full and the bonds so deep
for this place from which he was born.

Never a day when the tide didn't pull him
away from the mainland to the edge of the sea,
voices of his brothers calling him on wards,
sound of the sea birds would set his soul free

Following the spring tide, the headline far behind them
north wind prevailing the waves she'd cut through,
a prayer to the heavens, their guardian Polaris,
bound for the stretch where their lines would lay true
