Lyrics

Sailed my whole life on bloodied seas
Sail on through the storm
Laughed in hard times
Cried in easy
Taking it all back home

Walked through storms in shadowed valleys
Sail on through the storm
Asking questions that had no answers
Taking it all back home
Taking it all back home

Seen loved ones born
Seen loves ones dying
Sail on through the storm
Rocked with laughter
I shook with crying
Taking it all back home

Been down and out
Been high and mighty
Sail on through the storm
Been a peacemaker
Been a fighter
Taking it all back home
Taking it all back home

Sail on, sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Only a fool breaks their heart
for what is gone

Known real love
And I lived without it
Sail on through the storm
Still believe and I never doubted
Taking it all back home
Taking it all back home

Sail on, sail on, sail on
Sail on, sail on
Sailing home to where I truly do belong
Sail on, sail on, sail on
Don't waste your time in asking where
The time you've spent is gone
Sail on, sail on
Only a fool breaks their heart
for what is gone
