Surrounded By Sea (Israel Warren) videos

All of my life I had traveled,
and much of this world I did see,
But none can compare to the places
and the silence surrounded by sea;
I've always been a Newfie and
I'll be one the day that I die,
They make fun of us outside our province,
but I still hold my head high.

We know the things that big cities do,
but our love is just the same,
I'm proud of this life I am living,
and proud of the Newfoundland name;
Fisheries might not be a good job,
but it's gotta be good enough to see,
But without it what would happen
to the silence surrounded by sea.

On our island the people are friendly,
I'm sure they'll lend you a hand,
If you need help you can find it
and the silence of Newfoundland;
If the day should come that I leave here,
there'll always be some great memories,
I'll never forget the beauty
and the silence surrounded by sea.
I'll never forget the beauty
and the silence surrounded by sea.
