You Don't Have to be Alone

The tide is rolling back now,
Retreating back into the blue.
All that remain are remnants
Of the only storm you ever knew.

You grew up on the island,
It's the only land you know.
The ocean is your best friend,
On the shore the Sun watched you grow.

Come back, little sailor,
Chart yourself a course back home.
Come back, lonely hermit,
Don't spend your whole life alone.

You don't have to be alone.

You've weathered countless hurricanes,
Studied all the stars.
How is it you stay sane
In a world away so far?

We sent a message in a bottle,
Hoping it would find you,
Were our wishes all in vain?
If you return will you be the same?

Come back, little sailor,
Chart yourself a course back home.
Come back, lonely hermit,
Don't spend your whole life alone.

You should never have to live alone.
You don't deserve to feel alone.
