Look away
Lyrics
Look Away - The Far Horizon
© Bruce Mills 2005 (ASCAP)
Performed by Paula Danyluk and Kevin McDonald

Look away - the far horizon
Look away - across the sea
The distant shore - new morning rising
Please don't look back at me - just look away

Look away - I'll stand beside you
Look away - the time is here
Over there - old angels calling
Till its time to leave, I'll hold you near

Chorus:
I'd keep you safe up on the mainland
Close and warm, inside my door
Oh, I will love you past forever
But I cannot keep the tide from shore

Look away - the sun now setting
Look away - your ship soon sails
The day is done - and darkness falling
Stars will lead you through the stormy gales

Look away - please don't forget me
Look away - to Heaven home
Out on those waves - warm winds will guide you
Oh, I would go - but you must cross alone

Chorus:
I'd keep you safe up on the mainland
Close and warm, inside my door
Oh, I will love you past forever
But I cannot keep the tide from shore

Oh, I promise I will follow
We'll meet again / another day
I'll see you then / a new tomorrow
When the tide comes to carry me away

Over there, on that bright mainland
You will greet me at the door
And our love / will last forever
Like the tide comes and goes upon the shore
