To sail? To love? ... Then it occurred to me, why not both?

lyrics

From Those Who Sail Away

Blew a kiss into the wind off my port bow tonight
and I rolled out my chart for Frenchman's Bay
the kiss should have reached you by now and I by morning light
you don't hear much from those who sail away

I did not miss this harbor town no I came back for you
I'm walking through the morning light to the Southern Cross cafe
yeah you're there baking bread alone
I put my arms around you and say I'm home
you don't hear much from those who sail away

Chorus:

And the day is done in this old harbor town
the shopkeep and the shipwright
and the fishermen they're driving home
the old men still run their tugboats south
towing the granite barges building New York City
talking about the wives they've left
and the island girls they've known
and the day is done yeah the day is done

This boat's been beaten by the Cape's cold seas
and caressed by the wind of the West Indies
but I'll be selling sailboat rides today
and tell these tourists when we're through
about the best food in town and send them to you
you don't hear much from those who sail away

Fat Jack called from the Pirate's Pier
I told him I was freezing my ass off here
he said Joe needs a captain
but what more could I say
you don't hear much from those who sail away

Chorus

So darling keep that fire hot
there's ice in the rigging and snow on the dock
I guess I just missed hearing you say
you don't hear much from those who sail away

Blew a kiss into the wind off my port bow tonight
and I rolled out my chart for Frenchman's Bay
the kiss should have reached you by now
and I by morning light
you don't hear much from those who sail away
