Words and music by bob seger
Like the wind that carried ahab
To a far, more distant shore,
To a shipwreck that was certain
I can see there's no use sailing
Among ships I've known before.
It will only bring me more,
And more and more
Lonely sailing nights, more,
Racing, dimming lights.
Lonely nights, and all too
Just as water seeks it's level,
So I only seek to live;
Hoping somehow I can find
A way to give.
And the sea, it softly beckons,
"come and go where you've not been."
With the dawning of a new day,
I'm gone, again.
Lonely sailing nights, ... gone,
Racing, dimming lights,
And all too
Bob Seger Sailing Nights Lyrics
