Alone At Sea


Alone I lay on a wooden raft
Alone I stay in the dark
Alone I pray to survive
Alone I may not survive

Alone I look out to the sea
Alone I wake up on the sea
Alone I reach out for help
Alone I may not survive

Alone I eat my dry food
Alone I drink the salty water
Alone I sit in the cold
Alone I may not survive

Alone, yes, alone I stare at the storm
Alone, yes, alone I live on the sea
Alone, yes, alone I wait for the rescue boat
Alone, yes, alone I may not survive

Alone, yes, alone I pray to be safe
Alone, yes, alone I call out for help
Alone, yes, alone I get on the boat
Alone, yes, alone I was rescued

Alone, yes, alone I lived on the sea for months
And alone, yes, alone I walked ashore unaided
