Joseph Lyrics

Joseph, he left in the first light of morning
The boatman was waiting, the tide was turning
And he stood for a moment as if to say
I will see you in passing

The wind took the sails and he floated away
Like so much driftwood washed out of the bay
And he sailed to the island
Where the sand meets the sky and he breathed again

There was something about the sand and the sea
How it all comes together, how it's all meant to be
For water is life and sand measures time for the healing

They say he found Jesus, but that's really not true
It's just an excuse for the blind and confused
For he searched for beauty and freedom from pain
And he made himself well

Joseph, we waited for you
We waited and hoped you'd come through
We looked to the mail boat to bring us a word
But the sound of the seagull was all that we heard

Now he walks like a dancer and measures his space
So strong in his movement and easy with grace
And he carries his body like one who has seen
The hope of an answer

And way in the distance the island is there
Which shifts in the sunlight and floats in the air
A haven for dreamers and lovers who lost
And people like Joseph

Joseph, we waited for you
We waited and hoped you'd come through
We looked to the mail boat to bring us a word
But the sound of the seagull was all that we heard
