Spindrift and Foam
From the CD "WEST"




Hold fast when the wind is high
Keep watch on the shifting sky
These southern storms can’t last forever

One man with a dream unfurled
One boat taking on the world
Bare masted hope will run the weather

Loose on the ocean’s roll
Salt water in your soul
Alter your course
But not your goal

Sleep broken to trim the sai
l Close hauled into the gale
The wind won’t blow the way you’re heading

Time comes when you’re feeling lost
Keep sight of the albatross
You may not meet the wave you’re dreading

Respect for the raging sea
(you’re as) defenceless as you can be
Alter your course but not your dream

Spindrift and foam
Follow you home across the sea lanes
Spindrift and foam
Storm tossed and blown
Across the world

We live in the coastal clime
We cling to the maritime
We work the land but need the water
We’ve grown in a complex age
The ocean marks every page
The sea inspires our sons and daughters

From the knockabout tin canoe
To the fame of Australia two
The courage to make your dreams come true

Spindrift and foam
Follow you home across the sealanes
Spindrift and foam
Storm tossed and blown across the world

Hold fast when the wind is high
Keep watch on the shifting sky
Hold fast when the wind is high
