Lyrics
WINDSAIL
by STEVE DAFOE 2004
Verse A

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The sun sets on the sea tonight.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Leaves it's pure golden ray.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
And we're here on the beach alone,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
And your're begging me to stay.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
But that sea keeps calling out to me.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Making whispers in the night.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The choice is very hard to make.
G Fmaj7
I just wanna see the light.
G Fmaj7
I just wanna see the light.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The moon on the water glistens with might.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
It cozies into Baja Bay.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
And now I know what I must do.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
She's calling me away.

Chorus

G Fmaj7
She's calling me away.
G Fmaj7
She's calling me away.
G Fmaj7
To go far away to stay.









Verse B

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Oh windsail, oh my windsail.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
I built you with my hands.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
You keep me free and let me be.
G Fmaj7
Let's go to other lands.
G Fmaj7
Let's go to other lands.

Chorus

G Fmaj7
You keep calling me away.
G Fmaj7
You keep calling me away.
G Fmaj7
To go far away to stay.

Verse C

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The anchor's up, the ropes are in.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The sail's in full bloom above.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
I look back to the dock and see,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The women that I love.

Chorus

G Fmaj7
The women that I love.
G Fmaj7
And she's begging me to stay.
G Fmaj7
And not go that far away.


Verse C

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
But that sea keeps calling out to me,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Making whispers in the night.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
The choice is hard to make.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Is it her or the sails so bright?
G Fmaj7
Her or the sails so bright?
G Fmaj7
Her or the sails so bright?
G Fmaj7
I just wanna see the light.
G Fmaj7
I just wanna see the light.
