I’m Not Some Hero To Call Upon

I’m not some hero to call upon
Just a simple man, wanting to go home
Bracing against these salty winds
Reoccurring themes to this syndrome
I know where all the good stuff is
Needing my love at the end of each day
Counting white caps dancing in the water
There’s nothing complicated in my DNA
This ship slowing with her icy sails
Wishing to return to warmth all the more
Searching for glory towards the True North
But my heart was left with her back on the shore

Watching Waves Ride Up To The Railing

wave-1215449.jpg

Watching waves ride up to the railing
White caps at each & every rise
The boat shaking under your feet
Feeling dread well up inside your eyes
Careful to step away from the edge
Never been this close to the absolute
Those merciless swells keep rolling
Only you can keep the steel under your boot

Rhythmic Clangs Sending Me To Slumber

ship-85582

Rhythmic clangs sending me to slumber
Feeling boiled alive from this steam
Riding the tops of white caps
Open ocean no longer a distant dream
Haze grey & underway
Never sleeping again with wide open amaze
Searching for Neptune within this nevermore
Fear crawling down my back, but does not take
Forcing back fear known of the ocean floor
Haze grey & underway
