Like Father Like Son

Stand by the railing and say goodbye
To all you ever thought was home
You hardly ever see a sailor cry...
Beneath the lady who guides you in
The skyline wastes its tears like rain
Ah let the games begin
Sail away, sail away
Oh, oh, sail away...

(chorus)
Like father like son
Blood's thicker than water
Got to do what must be done
Your race is never won...it's never won...

Somewhere behind your loved ones wait alone
Three lonely years since you've seen home
You read the letters all about the boy
A son that you don't even know
Across a continent behind your dreams
They take a toll but not your name
Sometimes its never really what it seems...
And the work is hard but you're still game
Oh, oh sail away...

(chorus)
Like father like son
Blood's thicker than water
Got to do what must be done
Your race is never won...it's never won...

(bridge)
And like your father did before you
You break your back you take your turn
And you take a hand but not a handout
Everything you got you earned...

(chorus)
Like father like son
Blood's thicker than water
Got to do what must be done
Your race is never won...it's never won...

And now it's you that's out there on your own
Another time another place
Head on collison with the one that's grown
And staring at you face to face
And what the journey's finally taught you
Is that you have to pass it on
Ships are safer in the harbor
But that's not where ships belong
So we sail away...

(chorus)
Like father like son
Blood's thicker than water
Got to do what must be done
Your race is never won...it's never won...
