Moon on a canvas sail
Such a beautiful sight
Lost on a star-dust trail
On a mystical night
Wash of a million waves
Calling to me
Deep in my soul I can hear
The song of the ocean
Far from the noise of men
Free from it's hold
We took our dreams and ran
We were scattered like gold
Softer than silken feet
Through a night like a prayer
Taking our hearts to meet
The song of the ocean
Golden moon, silent friend, rides alone
Just like me, he can see
The beauty in your song
Strung like a million pearls
Stars in the sky
Dance as the seabird call
Their lonely lullaby
Heaven is there to touch
If your heart is clear
I've come to love so much
The song of the ocean
Secrets as old as time
Whisper to me
Sometimes a soul can feel
What the mind cannot see
Heaven is there to touch
If your heart is clear
I've come to love so much
The song of the ocean
The song of the ocean
