The Voyage Song lyrics without the chords
I am a sailor and you’re my first mate;
We signed on together, coupled our fate;
Hauled up our anchor, determined not to fail,
For the heart’s treasure together we set sail.
With no maps to guide us we steered our own course;
Rode the storms when the winds were gale-force;
Sat out the doldrums with patience and hope,
Working together we learned how to cope.
Life is an ocean, and love is a boat,
In troubled waters it keeps us afloat.
When we started the voyage there was just me and you:
Now gathered look around us, we have our own crew.
Together we’re in this relationship;
We built it with care to last the whole trip.
Our true destination’s not marked on a chart,
We’re navigating for the shores of the heart.
