Ready For The Storm Ready For The Storm
Credits: Dougie MacLean
Appears On: Ready For The Storm
Language: English
Other Versions: "Ready For The Storm" on Aoife Ferry's album The Turning Of The Tide


The waves crash in, and the tide pulls out
It's an angry sea, but there is no doubt
That the lighthouse will keep shining out
To warn the lonely sailor
And the lightning strikes, and the wind cuts cold
Through the sailor's bones to the sailor's soul
'Til there's nothing left that he can hold
Except the roaring ocean

I am ready for the storm
Yes, all ready
I am ready for the storm
I'm ready for the storm

Give me mercy for my dreams
'Cause every confrontation seems
To tell me what it really means
To be this lonely sailor
But when the sky begins to clear
And the sun, it melts away my fear
I'll cry a silent, weary tear
At those that need to love me


Distance, it is no real friend
And time will take its time
And you will find that in the end
It brings you near a lonely sailor
But when you take me by your side
You love me warm, you love me
And I should have realized
I had no reason to be frightened

(Chorus 2x)
