Lyrics

Ahab’s Wife

Standing by the ocean standing by the rail
I am watching with the wind in my eyes as Ahab follows the whale
Standing by the ocean under cold Nantucket skies
I am watching as the love of my life sails away on the tide

I am the girl with the ocean in my eyes
I have climbed the rigging I have I have ridden the sky
I have pitched with the waves I have sung out my tale
With my heart in my mouth I have called out the whale

Standing by the ocean standing by the rail
I am watching with the wind in my eyes as Ahab follows the whale

I can’t hold you here in my arms I’m not strong like the tide
Oh you won’t be contained no you won’t be content by my side
The roll of your nightmares the call of the sea
The dark distant eyes when you’re looking at me

Standing by the ocean I am scanning the sea
Willing the shining white wings to carry my Ahab to me
Home to me
