Another Shore

It’s dark out on the horizon
The sea and the sky are blue and gray
Behind me there’s a glow above the hills
I’ll be gone before the break of day

Used to be a darkness in my life
Soul stuck in a long dark night
Maybe somewhere past that horizon
Is what I hope will help to put me right

I’ll take that ship wherever it goes
where I’ll end up heaven knows
nothing wrong with where I am but I’ve seen it all before
so I’ll take that ship and sail away
and find another shore

The world is round, everyone knew
From long before Columbus rode the foam
Circles have no end and no beginning
No matter where you head you’re heading home

I’ll take that ship wherever it goes
where I’ll end up heaven knows
nothing wrong with where I am but I’ve seen it all before
so I’ll take that ship and sail away
and find another shore

vagabonding, wanderlust, or travel
whatever you call it’s all the same
restless rambling trek toward that horizon
to see the world without a picture frame

I’ll take that ship wherever it goes
where I’ll end up heaven knows
nothing wrong with where I am but I’ve seen it all before
so I’ll take that ship and sail away
and find another shore

Some folks are content to stay at home
Some of us can barely keep still
Some of you might want to come along
Down the road and over that next hill

I’ll take that ship wherever it goes
where I’ll end up heaven knows
nothing wrong with where I am but I’ve seen it all before
so I’ll take that ship and sail away
and find another shore
