Southern Cross Crosby Stills Nash - Songs Of Travel

But on a midnight watch I realized, why twice you ran away!

The Southern Cross is a group of stars south of the Equator.

Crosby, Stills & Nash Southern Cross Lyrics:

Got out of town on a boat, going to Southern
Islands Sailing a reach before a following sea.
She was making for the trades on the outside, and
the downhill run to Papeete.

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas, We
got eight feet of waterline, nicely making way. In
a noisy bar in Avalon, I tried to call you. But on
a midnight watch I realized, why twice you ran

(Chorus) Think about..Think about how many times I
have fallen. Spirits are using me, larger voices
calling. What heaven brought you and me cannot be
forgotten. I have been around the world, looking
for that woman-girl, who knows love can endure.
And you know it will. And, you know it will.

When you see the Southern Cross for the first
time, You understand why now you came this way.
'Cause the truth you might be running from is so
small. But it's as big as the promise, the promise
of a coming day. So I'm sailing for tomorrow, my
dreams are a dying. And my love is an anchor tied
to you, tied with a silver chain. I have my ship
and all her flags are a flying. She's all that I
have left and music is her name.

(Repeat Chorus)

So we cheated and we lied and we tested. And we
never failed to fail, it was the easiest thing to
do. You will survive being bested. Somebody fine
will come along, make me forget about loving the Southern Cross.

Lyrics: Southern Cross, Crosby, Stills & Nash
