Dixie Chicks — Storm Out On The Sea lyrics

As a girl I watched the sailing ships Like white birds on the sea Their sails were wings that rode the wind My heart longed to be free I saw you standing by the sea But your hand was warm against my face The beach was dark as death 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 all alone Put your arms around me You never said you'd stay with me And I'll never sail alone I never tied your hands Where they can walk dry-footed The way some frightened women do to keep their love on land In their lover's arms they hide And never fear the tide Or the moon upon the water Loke lost sailors seeking land And the clouds came low and lonely The rain upon my body beat me down upon the sand Soon I learned that lovin' you means drowning in the sea And you turned your back on me
