Compass card is spinning, helm is swinging to and fro
Oh, where is the dog star, oh, wheres the moon.
Youre a lost sailor, been away too long at sea.

Somedays the gales are howling, sometimes the sea is still as glass.
Oh, raise the main sail, oh, lash the mast.
Youre a lost sailor, been away too long at sea.
Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free.

Theres a sea bird cryin and theres a ghost wind blowing
And its calling you, to that misty swirling sea.
Till the chains of your dreams are broken,
No place in this world you can be.

Youre a lost sailor, been away too long at sea.
Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free.

You pay for being free, Ill tell ya freedom dont come easy,
Free dont always come for free,
Sometimes its hard to know what to believe in.

Where to go, who to go, where to be, who to be.
That means youre driftin.... driftin
Yeah driftin and dreamin, really goin on a dream now.
Really goin on a feelin, really goin on a feelin.
Driftin, driftin and dreamin.

Cause its a place youve never been
Maybe a place youve never seen now
You can hear them callin on the wind
Driftin and dreamin, driftin and dreamin.
Really goin on a dream now, really goin on a dream now,
Really goin on a dream now.
