Sailors and Seagulls
Written by Dewey Bunnell (recorded in 1981), ©2020
Found on Half Century Box Set-Disc 4

In the sea breeze alone one day
I sat outside watching the seagull glide its way
Upon the river of his wishing to the channels in the sky
He was alone showing me the way to fly
I was alone

I fell asleep in the sand
Hypnotized by the ocean on the land
And I dreamt the raging thunder as the ocean rose again
They all forgot sailors, skippers, lonely men
They are alone

Sailing away
Like the seagull today
They are sailing away
From their home
