Lyrics, metaphorically

Sailing Again
Up on the wave I’ll live my life on the bow
You can’t head straight into the wind if you want to get somewhere anyhow

Sailing again
And the wind won’t stop blowing
And the ocean it’s rolling under your feet
Life is returning to me

When I’m dreaming I see waves and they’re still falling
I still see you standing on the shores
There’s nothing to go back to
Because we left it behind
The sea will bring you home every time

Sailing again
And the wind won’t stop blowing
And the ocean it’s rolling under your feet
Life is returning to me
Life is returning to me
Life is returning to me

As pop music lyrics become less metaphorical, less literary, and to some, less insightful or enjoyable, there will always be songwriters, or artists, who will champion humor, irony, and insight into words and will use them to weave meaning into your ears.
