Denny Sarokin



There's a ship

And it sails a sea of light

On it's way to me tonight

From a distant shore

Taking me home once more



And the waves

And the whistling of the wind

Make me come alive again

My destiny's at my door



Going to leave this town forever

And go where I'll never

Nead an overcoat no more, where they cry ...



Ooh lalalala, every night and every day

Sitting by the Gulf coast just a thousand miles away

Where they cry ...

Ooh lalalala, on an island I will dwell

Starlit nights in paradise on the Isle of Sanibel



There's a girl

And I see her dressed in white

As she lies there in the night

I can hear her cry

Where has he gone and why



But she knows

That someday he will arrive

And it keeps her love alive

Dreams can never die



She looks across the ocean

At sails in motion

In the early morning sky, where they cry ...



Angels of the water, sirens of the sea

Whispering there sweet love songs

Calling out to me
