Storm Out On The Sea
Thank Heavens For Dale Evans (1990)

As a girl I watched the sailing ships
Like white birds on the sea
Their sails were wings that rode the wind
And my heart longed to be free
I saw you standing by the sea
The beach was dark as death
But your hand was warm against my face
Your kiss was my life's breath

And lovin' you's like drowning in a storm out on the sea
Put your arms around me darling now and rescue me
And lovin' you's like drowning and I feel so far from home
Put your arms around me and I'll never sail alone

You never said you'd stay with me
I never tied your hands
The way some frightened women do 
To keep their love on land
Where they can walk dry-footed
And never fear the tide
Or the moon upon the water
In their lover's arms they hide

And lovin' you's like drowning in a storm out on the sea
Put your arms around me darling now and rescue me
And lovin' you's like drowning and I feel so far from home
Put your arms around me and I'll never sail alone

Well the rain upon my body beat me down upon the sand
And the clouds came rowin' lonely
Like lost sailors seeking land
Soon I learned that lovin' you means drowning in the sea
When you closed your arms against me
And you turned your back on me

And lovin' you's like drowning in a storm out on the sea
Put your arms around me darling now and rescue me
And lovin' you's like drowning and I feel so far from home
Put your arms around me and I'll never sail alone

And lovin' you's like drowning in a storm out on the sea
Put your arms around me darling now and rescue me
And lovin' you's like drowning and I feel so far from home
Put your arms around me and I'll never sail alone

Whoa, put your arms around me and I'll never sail alone
