Seventh Sea

Music and Lyrics by Dougie MacLean

Let me find out where we've landed
Somehow this doesn't seem so right
We could be lost we could be stranded
In the darkness of the night
And I don't see the broad horizon
Don't feel the warmth of the sun
Which makes it all the more surprising
When you think on where we've come

We sailed the seventh sea
To touch the distant shore
But the truths we have to tell
Have all been told before

Let me fix that broken anchor
That worn rope was sure to fail
And I never got the chance to thank her
Before we all set sail
And will we reach that final promise
Will all our hopes and dreams remain
Now that the storm is up and on us
Will we ever meet again


Sometimes it's hard to find the reason
Sometimes it's hard to feel the joy
As with every passing season
We watch the girl and boy
And to be strong is to be grateful
And to be great is oft times small
But in the place that's fear and hateful
Oh it's love that leads us all
