lyrics

Through the window in the morning
Came the sound of seabirds calling
and I was wakened by a whisper
But my failing eyes could find no one there

Oh Adelaide
Can you hear me child
Howling out into the air
I’ve gone oceans wide
Over endless tides
Praying I would find you there
without a sign
Of Adelaide

I dreamed her ashen
Clipper sails
Pierced the heather
Fog wind veil
To find her diving
Neath towering water
That swallowed the fortress down
Stern and bow

Oh Adelaide
My poor troubled mind
It wont let me lay you down
For I have lived and died
In this wakeless night
With nothing to be found
but a silent tide
of Adelaide

Peering over
The turning water
blackened billows
The sky a’thunder
Something out there
Pulled me closer
And I charged the broken waves
For the sight

Oh Adelaide
I can hear you child
Come to call my spirit home
n’ tho the frozen tide
Chills my body white
I’ve never felt so un-alone
Oh Adelaide
I'm right behind
