Southern Cross Lyrics

Got out of town on a boat, going to Southern Islands
Sailing a reach before a following sea.
She was making for the trades on the outside, and the
downhill run to Papeete Bay.

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas,
We got eighty feet of waterline, nicely making way.
In a noisy bar in Avalon, I tried to call you.
But on a midnight watch I realized, why twice you ran

Think about..Think about how many times I have fallen.
Spirits are using me, larger voices calling.
What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten.
I have been around the world, looking for that woman-
girl, who knows love can endure.
And you know it will. And, you know it will.
When you see the Southern Cross for the first time,
You understand now why you came this way.
'Cause the truth you might be running from is so small.
But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a coming
So I'm sailing for tomorrow, my dreams are a dying.
And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a
silver chain.
I have my ship and all her flags are a flying.
She's all that I have left and music is her name.

(Repeat Chorus)

So we cheated and we lied and we tested.
And we never failed to fail, it was the easiest thing
to do.
You will survive being bested.
Somebody fine will come along, make me forget about
loving the Southern Cross.

Last verse: You will survive being busted....not bested. A reference to David Crosby being busted on a weapon charge.
