Lyrics

Father won't you take me
On a trip across the sea
Nothing here is
Keeping me alive
All the boys from far away
Who come on bended knee
Only want to
Take me for a wife

And I want to sail
Across the water
Feel the waves
Beneath my feet
I want to soar
To that horizon
And touch what lies
Beyond all I can see
Beyond all I can see

I can never be the son
You'd hoped would come along
But I am so much more
Than what you see
I'm far more resourceful
Than any boy is strong
Won't you take me with you
And you'll see

When we sail
Across the water
Feel the waves
Beneath our feet
When we reach
That far horizon
And touch what lies
Beyond all I can see
Beyond all I can see

I know you care for me
And I know
It's at a cost
You look at me
I know it's her you see
The love we lost
All that might have been
If not for me
All that might have been
If not for me

But if we sail
Across the water
Feel the waves
Beneath our feet
If we can reach
That far horizon
Then maybe
You can find that love...

But if we sail
Across the water
Feel the waves
Beneath our feet
If we can reach
That far horizon
Then maybe
You can find that love
...In me

Father can't you
Find that love in me
Father can't you
Find that love in me
Find that love in me.
