Current Song: Ulysses by Josh Garrels

I'm holding onto hope that one day this could be made right
'Cause I've been shipwrecked
and left for dead
and I have seen the darkest sights

Everyone I've loved seems like a stranger in the night
But, oh, my heart still burns
Tells me to return
and search the fading light

I'm sailing home to you
I won't be long
By the light of moon
I will press on
Until I find my love

Trouble has beset my ways and wicked winds have blown
Sirens call my name
They say they'll ease my pain
Then break me on the stones

But true love is the burden that will carry me back home
Carry me with the memories of the beauty I have known

I'm sailing home to you
I won't be long
By the light of moon
I will press on
Until I find my love

So tie me to the mast of this old ship and point me home
Before I lose the one I love
Before my chance is gone
I want to hold her in my arms

- Ulysses by Josh Garrels

It's funny to read this journey song just after reading Donna's epic journey story and poem!
