Artist/Band: Runrig
Lyrics for Song: The Ship
Lyrics for Album: The Stamping Ground [2001]



I awoke in the dusts of an autumn morning

Faces oil-lit kneeling round the family chairs

I never knew that a heart could take such filling

Spaces everywhere.



And the ship comes 'round

And she's waiting at the harbour

Be prepared to get on board, be prepared



I never knew that the light of ages

Breaks the way before us

Sail away, sail away



All the front doors opened and the men came walking

Suits and shoes, heads of silver and grey

It's one short road from a darkened cradle

To the endless light of day.



She walked like a bride down the aisle of her childhood

The shops, the schoolyard, the church on the hill

Where she trembled on the day

She was touched and broken

Marie was born again.



And the ship comes 'round

And she's waiting at the harbour

Be prepared to get on board, be prepared



I never knew that the light of ages

Breaks the way before us

Sail away, sail away



All ears to the trawler-band in the evenings

Forty crans and the spirits run wild

The storms, the drownings, the tables, the drinking

The sea had claimed their lives.



There's a peat smoke rising from the village chimneys

You take your chances with the red haired girl

All the boats take their rest in the heart of the harbour

That night in a changing world.



And the ship comes 'round

And she's waiting at the harbour

Be prepared to get on board, be prepared



I never knew that the light of ages

Breaks the way before us

Sail away, sail away
