Song Magic – Star of the Sea

Star of the Sea

Heya cutie-pies!

Since some of you have asked about the lyrics to my songs, I have started this Song Magic series, where I feature a song, the lyrics, and bit about what inspired the song.

This time I am featuring Star of the Sea, off of Song of the Sea.

This song is about following one’s inspiration, dedicated to Venus, the star that guides the sailors, inspires poets, and drives lovers mad.  This song is an ode to  following that which compels us and brings beauty into or lives, that for which we would give all.  Enjoy!

 

Here she comes, soft as a whisper of wild things
Bringing her siren songs for me to sing
Her charms ensnare me, they capture my senses
As twilight unveils the secret that stirs the hearts of kings

What praises I wouldn’t sing
For the bright star of evening

While there’s a song in my soul that’s worth singing
While there is passion to quicken my blood
I will follow the star of the sea
Until all her songs are sung

I’ve dipped my toes in the madness of muses
Who spin their tunes with strands of their shining silver hair
Now I dance, untamed, drunk in the houses of God, yea,
Singing until my voice is raw

Delirium has me in thrall
Is it freedom or folly

While there’s a song in my soul that’s worth singing
While there is passion to quicken my blood
I will follow the star of the sea
Until all her songs are sung

I’ve kept my dreams frozen too long
Waiting to wake them with song
It’s a tune I have known all along

While there’s a song in my soul that’s worth singing
While there is passion to quicken my blood
I will follow the star of the sea
And I’ll rise up singing
Until all her songs are sung

  1. I’m Trying to find the song with these lyrics;

    Kiss your loved ones ” Good Bye” Leave them all on the land

    I can promise you more than any woman on shore ever can

    Raise your sails to the wind Turn your face to the sea

    You can give all your gold to the girls But your heart is for me

    And with the push of the wind and the pull of the tide

    On the edge of my world you will ride

    With a song of the sea With a song of the sea

    Feel the surge of the waves Hear the gulls as they cry

    Well, they’re just like you They’ve got to soar on the blue or they’ll die

    And you’ll always be mine You belong to the sea

    You may care for your wife But you’ll give up your life just for me

    And with the push of the wind and the pull of the tide

    On the edge of my world you will ride

    With a song of the sea With a song of the sea

    I don’t know the title and have been searching for it with no luck
    It’s beautiful, someone should sing it. I have a poor copy of it. But like I said can’t find an original recorded version.
    Hey Good luck

  2. Oh that is lovely! Right up my alley.

    But yeah, I wouldn’t be able to sing it without getting permission, and for that we’d need to know the author.

    If you find out, let me know, will you?

    Thanks! – Sharon
