Half a lifetime from the golden years
and the tides keep rolling in.
And in the mighty waves I hear
their spirit calling me again.
Shaking sails and cetecean
and the tales of yore unfold.
In the mystery wind my anchient friends
keep calling out to my soul.

Mr brothers deep keep calling my soul
I hear them call when the sloop keel rolls.
Over the top I watch them blow
my brothers deep keep calling my soul.
The big wheel kicks and the main sails grow
and my brothers deep keep calling my soul.

The windsongs play and the sheets fill up
and the brine is in my eyes.
I'm climbing up with a soaring rush
the waves as high as the sky.
Cross the watery dawn the sun smiles in
and the blue-gray turns to gold
and my brothers deep and the restless wind
keep calling out to my soul.

Well I knew all along that we were one
because the sea always meets the sky.
The wheelhouse rocks on the morning run
now we're rolling side by side.
Over the top there's an old wild song
the ancient love songs of old.
When the trick is done and the run moves on
they keep calling out to my soul.

My brothers deep keep calling my soul
I hear them call when the sloop keel rolls
Over the top I watch them blow
my brothers deep keep calling my soul.
The big wheel kicks and the main sails grow
and my brothers deep keep calling my soul.

Wow!  I really like the way this reads, so smooth, and the sea so moody and the whale is such a grand romantic creature to write of.  Really enjoyed!
