Southern Cross lyrics

Rocking through the night
All is silent...southern cross
Its easy for me to write
Even though I wonder...
But I feel nothing seems lost
Were still full of hope
Although the trip is grinding

What can I say
Remember how we talked about
A world thats free
It may be hard to find
The land where war and hatred ceased to be
And the ship is sailing on across the ocean

We said farewell to yesterday
But in a year and one more day
Youll read the headlines everywhere
About the daring messengers
Who found an island in the sea
Untouched by misery

Im wearing your bandanna
Your pictures in my mind
Well concealed
And the vision of your face
Is never far away no no
Its always with me
So your smile is my companian
Till Im back with you again

We said farewell to yesterday
But in a year and one more day
Youll raed the news throughout the land
About some new-age emigrants
Who found an island in the sea
Untouched by misery

The ship sailed on...course: south-west, passing cape harn heading
Far the pacific ocean... no storm no damage to its body could stop
It on its way. . . but the destination was still so far away
They had sailed for almost four months and four days...
