antarctica lyrics – al stewart

long before i ever saw
the frost upon your face
i was haunted by your beauty
and it drew me to this place
i felt the chill of mystery
with one foot on your sh*r*
and then and there resolved to go
where no man had before

maybe i was snowblind
but it seemed the wind spoke true
and i believed it’s stories then
as dreamers sometimes do
in antarctica
in antarctica

who knows what the powers may be
that cause a man to go
mindless of the dangers
out across the virgin snow
seduced by this ambition
i easily forget
the hopeless quest of shackleton
the dreamlike death of scott


maybe i was snowblind
perhaps it sapped my will
but something of my innocence
is wandering there still
in antarctica
in antarctica
in antarctica
in antarctica
