Thursday Song: “Columbus Day”


—–
You set sail into the gale
And pointed your ships west
Trying to find the eastern shore
Take great care what you find there
Your behavior must be best
‘Til you come back proudly through the door

Baby I’m here
Baby you know that it’s
Time to come back home
No more sailing away
I’ll look for you on Columbus Day

For forty years, I faced my fears
That you would not return
I would walk the widow’s walk
Somehow I could not move on
The coals in me still burned
Everything else was just talk

Baby I’m here
Baby you know that it’s
Time to come back home
No more sailing away
I’ll look for you on Columbus Day

Go on your own, the light you’ve shone
Is shining in you still
And you know it always will
I know you’re still scared, but if you dare
The dream will fade away
Like the frost that’s on your windowsill

Baby I’m here
Baby you know that it’s
Time to come back home
No more sailing away
I’ll look for you on Columbus Day
