I see your face across the sea, you're in the waves surrounding me,
I hear your voice call on the breeze, on the ship out on the ocean.

Sailing across the sea on a big ship on the ocean,
The moon is rising in the East, the stars hang down around her.
The bow is arrow to the hearts of the ones we wish to come to home to,
But the newly-lit night directs this flight,
Singing 'The ocean road will guide you.'

I see your face across the sea, you're in the waves surrounding me,
I hear your voice call on the breeze, on the ship out on the ocean.

*Instrumental *

When I awake I'll cast my anchor down and dive below,
I'll dive into my lover's arms and warm the ocean's cold.
Across the sea into our homes, we'll meet again so soon,
You'll be with me across the sea on the ship out on the ocean.

I see your face across the sea, you're in the waves surrounding me,
I hear your voice call on the breeze, on the ship out on the ocean.

I see your face across the sea, you're in the waves surrounding me,
I hear your voice call on the breeze, on the ship out on the ocean,

On the ship out on the ocean, on the ship out on the ocean.
