Lyrics

There’s a ship out in the harbour patient on that glassy green
As the last boat rowing slowly carries her away from me
I know her heart was heavy, heavy as these iron chains
And her face was stained with sorrow as she turned her eyes away

Hold the wind, don’t let it blow
Gentle as a babe asleep, silent as a stone
Hold the wind, calm the seas
Quiet every single breath while I still breathe

Soon the jailer will collect me, march me down that one-way street
Hang me like a flag of freedom while she sails out to sea
What I did I did for honour, not for lust and not for gold
For to see that villain strike her made my blood turn freezing cold

Hold the wind, don’t let it blow
Gentle as a babe asleep, silent as a stone
Hold the wind, calm the seas
Quiet every single breath while I still breathe

There’s justice now and judgement later
Here's the price that must be paid
Now I go to meet my maker
Longing for one last look at her sweet, sweet face

Hold the wind, don’t let it blow
Gentle as a babe asleep, silent as a stone
Hold the wind, calm the seas
Quiet every single breath while I still breathe
