Written by Gerry Beckley and Steve Levine, ©1994
Found on Hourglass.

Ah
Lately, it hasn't been easy
I've been wanderin' all night
Searchin', tryin' to find an answer
Why I'm in this situation

I've been sailing close to the wind
Trying to keep my head above water
Close to the wind, without you
I've been sailing close to the wind
Everyday it just gets harder
But you're all I need to survive

For so long it felt like
I was walking on the water
I found the hard part
Is waking without you in the morning

I've been sailing close to the wind
The weight of the world's on my shoulders (everyday now)
Close to the wind, without you
I've been sailing close to the wind
The loneliness it's neverending (yes I'm falling)
Open your heart, come aboard

And if we're back together
I know our love will be everlasting
I still believe that there's a chance
For us to have a happy ending
Peace will reign on earth
LIfe for all it's worth, oh yeah

I pray every single morning
That this time we will be much stronger

I've been sailing close to the wind
Help me try to find a shelter (to protect you)
Close to the wind without you
I've been sailing close to the wind
But inside it's safe and warm now (we're together)

Don't be afraid of the storm
I've been sailing close, close to the wind (been sailing in)
(Close to the wind) Don't be afraid of the storm
I've been sailing close, close to the wind (been sailing in)
(Close to the wind) Don't be afraid of the storm ...
