Simon Le Bon

"Grey Lady Of The Sea" is a Simon Le Bon and Nick Wood single, released in Japan by Sony Records and in the UK by SYN Productions during 1988.

About the song Edit

This was Simon Le Bon's first solo project, which he wrote and performed for the documentary soundtrack of Drum - The Journey Of A Lifetime.

The single was only released as a 1-track 5" CD promo in the UK, and as a Japanese only 3" CD containing two more songs from the movie soundtrack by Bronski Beat and Propaganda.

On 10 August 1985, the Fastnet race started with Simon taking part as a crew member on his co-owned yacht called Drum. By the end of the summer he would partner his friend Nick Wood, who was a record producer and song writer to craft this song from these sailing experiences. The following year in June 1986 "Grey Lady Of The Sea" was recorded and featured in film about the incredible journey of Drum's participation in the Whitbread Around The World Race, which was released on 2 July 1988 with an accompanying book coming out the following month in August.

Lyrics Edit

You've whispered out loud
But your breeze doesn't bend
We're lying in the palm of your 
hand
No land we see, no place to be
The salt of 
your tears, adds stain to our hearts
There's no long years can 
tear us apart
Our futures entwined with your past
Because when we lie awake
We'll be thinking of you

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home
Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Bravado is all but gone
And patience is down
You scared us and you've turned 
us around
But you won't let us drown
Because when 
we lie asleep
We'll be dreaming of you

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home
Blow, grey 
lady blow your ships back home

So answer us when 
we call
And say if you think we're wrong
When life 
is so short we can stay long
But you'll never be alone
Because one day we'll return
We'll be waiting for 
you

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home

Blow, grey lady blow your ships back home
