Here I stand alone again,
Reaching out across the room
Quietly the sun's gone down
And sailors seek the harbor
Look at us sailing in, decks awash, but still afloat
And now the wind's come up to rock us on the water.

Riding out the storm like a ship safe at anchor
Waiting out the long voyage,
'Round the cape of hope we'll take her

In the calm before the storm
Sunny days and smoother waters
When we hit the seventh wave,
We found a line and caught her
Look into my eyes, let me see
Where you've been sailing
Like you I've felt the storm
And heard the wild waves wailing

Riding out the storm like a ship safe at anchor
Waiting out the long voyage,
'Round the cape of hope we'll take her

Steer clear of the shore,
The coast is rough and rocky
It's the deepest channel that runs most true,
The brightest stars that mark her
Steady as she goes,
There's no turning back the sailors
With the ship on course and the sea wind fair,
There's no need to fail her.

Riding out the storm like a ship safe at anchor
Waiting out the long voyage,
'Round the cape of hope we'll take her
