Ready For The Storm

Dougie MacLean
The waves crash in and the tide tide pulls out It's an angry sea but there is no doubt That the lighthouse will keep shining out to warn the lonely sailor And the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold through the sailor's bones, to the sailor's soul Till there's nothing left that he can hold except the rolling ocean CHORUS But I am ready for the storm, yes sir, ready I am ready for the storm, I'm ready for the storm Oh give me mercy for my dreams Cause every confrontation seems To tell me what it really means to be this lonely sailor But when the sky begins to clear and the sun it melts away my fear I'll cry a silent weary tear for those that need to love me CHORUS The distance it is no real friend And time will take its time And you will find that in the end it brings you me, the lonely sailor And when you take me by your side you love me warm, you love me and I should have realized I had no reason to be frightened CHORUS
