discovery lyrics – chris de burgh

lady love, go back to sleep,
dry the tears from your eyes,
but i cannot stay with thee
until the morning,
for the dawn is breaking,
and my ship is waiting for me,
and i must go,
but i’ll be back, yes,
before this year is over;

so we sailed across the sea,
till we found america,
’round the cape of storms
we set our sails for home,
and when the sea was roaring
and the lord i called
to help my drowning men,
i saw the light, yes, the candle in your window…

and i have brought you silver,
and i have brought you gold,
and spices from the indies in the hold;
i’ve seen ships on the horizon,
that i’d swear were going down,
but now i know for certain,
the world is round,
i have seen, my eyes have seen.

one day says galileo,
a man will reach the sky,
and see the world completely,
from outside,
and gazing down from younder,
on a world of blue and green,
he’ll say with eyes of wonder,
i have seen, i have seen,
my eyes have seen.
i have seen,
my eyes have seen.
