Straight forward lyric about a yearning for the sea and adventure.

Lyrics: 

Call of the Sea

V1
I’ve packed my old canvas bag
Adventure is waiting for me
I’ll catch the tide in the morning
I must answer the call of the sea

V2
I’ll set course for the horizon
Sail down the path to the sun
When I come home I’ll tell you
What I’ve seen and what I’ve done

Pre-Chorus
Salt water runs in my veins
The land ties me in chains

Chorus
I have to go back to the sea
Its siren call captures me
And then it sets me free
That’s why I can’t resist,
The call of the sea

V3
The trade winds will fill my sails
And carry me o’er the main
I’ll come home and tell stories
Of places my anchor has lain

Pre-Chorus
Salt water runs in my veins
The land binds me in chains

Chorus:
I have to get back to the sea
Its siren call captures me
And then it set me free
That’s why I can’t resist,
The call of the sea

Great portrait of a person's longing for the sea. Nice!

Oh, I know that feeling. The romance of sail, the open expanse of a boundless sea, the call of the tide...

But I like how the conclusion of the lyrics is in returning home, with fresh tales to tell. And interesting that "home" is *not* the ocean. Nicely written!
