Icehouse Wind And Sail Lyrics

Now as the early light is catching the folds

Black lace and satin wrapped, wrapped up against her face

She turns her frozen steps that break the frost and cold

Beyond the misty bay, still sleeping to the east

“Too many miles”, she hears the seabirds call

Her captain’s ship, she waits for wind and sail

Below the breaking point the tide will ebb and fall

The storm is silent now, as silent as the dawn

Above the rocks and cliffs she watches all the while

She waits for distant sails that never will return

“Too many miles”, she hears the seabirds call

Her captain’s ship, she waits for wind and sail

Below the breaking point the tide will ebb and fall

The storm is silent now, as silent as the dawn

“Too many miles”, she hears the seabirds call

Her captain’s ship, she waits for wind and sail
