ARMS OF THE SEA

We were walking past the Cooper Church graveyard
Laughing out loud, telling jokes about our lost and departed

We all know who's caring for our lost and dear family

Across from the church stands what's left of the Old North Pier
There are footsteps on her planks and voices laughing with us

We all know who's caring for our lost and dear family
Since their boat dissapeared into the arms of the sea

Some nights the steeple points to Orion's Belt
Some nights we go drinking down at Molly's Well
Tonight we're holding hands, without fear
Our family is right here

We looked out past the pier as the moon's light came on
Saw the mast of a ship as it dipped beyong the horizon

We all know who's caring for our lost and dear family
Since their boat dissapeared into the arms of the sea

Some nights the steeple points to Orion's Belt
Some nights we go drinking down at Molly's Well
Tonight we're holding hands, without fear
Our family is right here

We were walking past the Cooper Church graveyard
