Lonely Trip

When I see through the deception
And the river is flowing free
You may understand the reason
Why I'm drifting at sea

And you may control the currents
As I drift in search of land
You may understand the reason
When the water turns to sand

So while you're on this lonely trip
Keep a watch for other ships
And if by chance our vessels pass
while you're on this lonely trip
Keep a watch for other ships
And if by chance our vessels pass
Perhaps we'll meet at last

When doors are all closed tightly
With words the only keys
You may understand the reason
Why I'm floating on the breeze

When I hear your voice responding
When no questions have begun
You may understand the reasons
Why I'm flying to the sun

So while you're on this lonely trip
Keep a watch for other ships
And if by chance our vessels pass
While you're on this lonely trip
Keep a watch for other ships
And if by chance our vessels pass
Perhaps we'll finally meet at last
