Safe In The Harbour Lyrics

Here is the lyrics for Safe In the Harbour We hope that you enjoy them just asmuch as we here at International Lyrics DataBase do.


Have you stood by the ocean on a diamond-hard morning And felt the horizon stir deep in your soul? Watched the wake of a steamer as it cut thru blue water And been gripped by a fever you just can't control? O to throw off the shackles and fly with the seagulls To where green waves tumble before a driving sea wind Or to lie on the decking on a warm summer evening Watch the red sun fall burning beneath the earth's rim

Chorus:

But to every sailor comes time to drop anchor Haul in the sails and make the lines fast You deep water dreamer, your journey is over You're safe in the harbor at last (2x)

Some men are sailors, but most are just dreamers Held fast by the anchors they forge in their minds Who in their hearts know they'll never sail over deep water To search for a treasure they're afraid they won't find So in sheltered harbours they cling to their anchors Bank dow their boilers & shut down their steam And wait for the sailors to return with the bright treasures That will fan the dull embers & fire up their dreams

Chorus

And some men are schemers who laugh at the dreamers Take the gold from the sailors & turn it to dross They're men in a prison, they're men without vision Whose only horizon is profit and loss So when storm clouds come sailing across your blue ocean Hold fast to your dreaming for all that you're worth For as long as there's dreamers, there will always be sailors Bringing back their bright treasures from the corners of earth
