Restless Waters Lyrics

Chorus:
Where the stone walls run to the face of the cliffs
So many times, my love and I walked the shore like this
Where the waters that flow past the mouth of the bay
Have brushed the shores of distant lands half a world
away
Just last week, we waded in the waters of the Nile
And dropped a line into the brine of a South Pacific
isle
And the waters underneath our bows hid Jonah and the
whale
There's a right hand side of Moses sea left here in our
trail
Chorus
And the waters here within my hand once washed a
mermaid's hair
And Francis Drake's Armada sank on that ripple over
there
And these three small drops upon the oar have flowed
Ulysses home
As around and 'round and 'round the world, the restless
waters roam

Chorus
And this small drop of water turned the first rocks
into sand
And this one here ran off the back of the first fish up
on land
And this one soaked Atlantis as it sank beneath the
waves
And this one kept a vigil at a thousand sailor's graves
Chorus
So at times we might be rowing out upon the China Sea
Or dropping pebbles in the blue from the beach at
Normandy
Or be soaked through by a breaking wave that came from
Botany Bay
As around and 'round and 'round the world, the water
flows each day
Chorus
It's many a man has left his home to sail upon the seas
To seek his fortune on the waters many miles from these
But the further that you sail away, the quicker you
float home
As around and 'round and 'round the world, the restless
waters roam
Chorus
