Intro as played in Radio City, NY, Oct 19, 1988 I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life, To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife; And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

COLD GUIDING LIGHT If I couldn't tell you all that I have done To reach this higher ground If I wasn't there to hold you And if I couldn't run to be your guiding light There in the darkness, there you were lost Without a guiding light Eyes staring wide Cold Shadows calling from the corners of the soul Endless mourning, fighting the odds Who would've thought, who would've led to see my soul? I will repent, I will forsake any divinity daring to ask for more I kneeled, and I found Another way to answer to it all, my eternity Fade out, leave me here Take my soul and never come back Leave your ways of tears and grief I will walk, we'll breathe the air Break my way, death in the sky Woe was me .woe...
THE SAILOR WAVES GOODBYE Waking hour fading once with the wind I see the way it has to be I see it all within And what I see and what I feel Suffering and pain One moment and life is gone One tear, and we're fallen down One life we had to choose One soul we had to lose Another day is gone Another fallen down Another way to choose Another way to lose Another waking hour Nobody left to blame My ghost is burning nowhere And trees all bow in shame Breaking hearts Folding all the pain now in your soul My mind is getting colder Memories will turn to dust Not much time to save the hour It's devoured once and for all This will go forever My hands are getting colder and my mind slips away As the night gets swept under More and more I fade Left us he who once belonged And he who loved To be one with the wind, be one with the Earth Always All inside will burn with dark We will mourn the past forever Soon this door will break With dawn My heart returned here all alone A FATHER'S DEATH Rows of light glimmer and the end is calling We cannot defend One last breath, and it's over One last look at the sky It won't back, forever One last grasp of life Burr your hearts, bury our souls forever A father's death will be coming closer to death, closer to mourning silence No remorse, no regrets Yet my time has come For the life that kept me in captivity, I cannot defend You my father, the one who always knew A father's death will show his child His mortality Take my hand.
