Sailing heart

I thought I found it on the shores of your heart
When the ship of my soul was crashing
Against the rocks of life
You were like a lighthouse leading to calm waters
A safe place to anchor
Respite for my spirit

When I anchored at you
I thought it would be a long time
But ships must sail when the wind blows
And the sea calls like the ancient sirens
My heart is no different
I'm going to leave 
I have to go to the places no one says you can go
I have to do what no one says you can do
I was made for this

Maybe that's what you are now
But there's a chance to come with me
To the boundless oceans of the universe
Let go of what you know and take the risk
Sail with me to uncharted territory or stay
I'm sailing away anyway
