Lyrics by Dave Mason:

Sail across the ocean
With your back against the wind,
Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird,
And when the rain begins to fall
Don't you start to curse, It may be just the tears
Of someone that you never heard.

'Cause there's somebody cryin' to be heard,
And there's also someone who hears every word
Reflected in the water
Is a face that you don't know,
And isn't it surprising
When you find out it's your own,
And so you try to find out
Whether it is friend or foe,
And what it is it wants from you
And what it wants to know.

You're wrapped up in your little world
And no one can get in,
You sit and think of everything
Then wonder where you've been,
You put the blame on someone
That you've hardly ever known,
And then you realize too late
The blame was all your own.
