Outside the rain's softly fallin',
In the distance I can hear a foghorn sound;
I pull my blanket just a little closer,
My mind's on a ship that's outward bound.

On a voyage through a memory,
sailin' on a silver sea,
The moon and stars above now brightly shine;
The wind that fills the sail
is a lullaby that tells the tale,
Of all the things that I was
glad to leave behind.

The ocean has always been a part of me,
I could feel the saltwater runnin' through my veins;
I think of all the places where my ship will take me,
But the thought of your gentle whisper leaves me strained.

On a voyage through a memory,
sailin' on a silver sea,
The moon and stars above now brightly shine;
The wind that fills the sail
is a lullaby that tells the tale,
Of all the things that I was
glad to leave behind.

But as I rise, look out my window,
A wall of grey right before my eyes;
And the sea it comes where time is slowly ticking,
How I wish that I could make my life feel fine.

On a voyage through a memory,
sailin' on a silver sea,
The moon and stars above now brightly shine;
The wind that fills the sail
is a lullaby that tells the tale,
Of all the things that I was
glad to leave behind.

On a voyage through a memory,
sailin' on a silver sea,
The moon and stars above now brightly shine;
The wind that fills the sail
is a lullaby that tells the tale,
Of all the things that I was
glad to leave behind.

Yes, the wind that fills the sail
is a lullaby that tells the tale,
Of all the things that I was
glad to leave behind.
