lyrics

The Net

I stood upon the open deck and gazed across the water
To a place where every traveller will never quite forget
And I heard a mermaid singing, or a man with cabin fever
‘Be careful what you wish for, you might find it yet’

As the sky began to darken well we settled down to listen
To the stories of the fishermen who braved the northern sea
And you will never taste a finer catch or come across a better match
Than the women of the island upon a stranger’s knee

We pulled into the harbour to a sea of friendly faces
And they took us by the hand to where the whisky never dries
And the night was spent in laughter and I started to remember
The moment that the light returned across the endless skies

Oh the joy and madness of a reckless early morning
And I still recall the sunlight streaming through the open door
And how we danced…

Like a movie in slow motion in an ocean full of colours, still
The seconds in between will last a lifetime in my mind
Of the night the heavens opened to the beauty all around us
When I saw the light return into my true loves eyes
How they did shine…

Following my true love’s eyes
To bask in their reflection
But the eyes they came to rest on were not mine
But how we danced…

I stood upon the open deck and gazed across the water
To a place where every traveller will never quite forget
And they say each one that comes back will be forever altered
And there's always one or two slip through the net
