lyrics

Come with me, come with me to the wide and open sea
We will leave our clothes heaped upon the shore
We'll be free we'll be free I'll find you and you'll find me
And the things we did not need we'll need no more

Seek and find, seek and find the world rewards a seeking mind
Open paths will lead you to open doors
You'll be safe from all thoughts grave they'll be many miles away
As your graceful head will sleep on foreign shores

And we will be our own country as we wander joyously
Our happy hearts will be our happy home
To the lees we'll drink this tea of life and liberty
And our love will buoy us where we may roam

In my time I will find my own peace of mind
When it comes it will come as a relief
Just as all the time that's gone after many months alone
When you're finally cured of your disease

Come with me, come with me and we'll see its majesty
Upon its carpet we will lie content and prone
Come with me, come with me upon new born feet
Far from our old lives we will have flown

Come with me, come with me to the wide and open sea
We will leave our clothes heaped upon the shore
We'll be free we'll be free I'll find you and you'll find me
And the things we did not need we'll need no more
And the things we did not need we'll need no more
And the things we did not need we'll need no more

The question of humanity—it's loss through privation of the spirit, it's corruption by seemingly unsurmountable forces, and it's redemption and salvation by acts and actors of disproportionate courage—is a pervasive theme throughout Lee's work. ... more
