spirit of the sea lyrics – blackmore’s night

i took a walk along the sh*r*
to clear my mind about the day
i saw a man, i’d seen before
as i approached, he slipped away

i knew his face from years ago
his smile stays with me ever more
his eyes, they guide me through the haze
and bring me shelter from the storm

as i walk i can feel him
always watching over me
his voice surrounds me
my spirit of the sea

he went away so long ago
on a maiden voyage far away
a young man then i did not know
his life was taken that same day

and it was almost like he knew
he wouldn’t see me anymore
he looked so deeply in my eyes, and said
“wait for me along the sh*r*”

as i walk i can feel him
always watching over me
his voice surrounds me
my spirit of the sea

and so i come most every day
to watch the waves rise and fall
and as i sit here on the sand
this ocean makes me feel so small

but i feel my lover by my side
and he makes me follow my own heart
we’ll be together some sweet day
when that day comes we’ll never part
when that day comes we’ll never part
wait for me along the sh*r*
