You sail the seas through the fog and rain
Past the rocks of danger, around the cape again.
Then paradise came into view, the sun shone brightly
The sea and sky, so blue

But you can never run, from the hurricane
you can never run, from the hurricane.
You can never hide, away
From the horror, horror of the hurricane
From the horror, horror, of the hurricane

You smelled the flowers, the songs of the birds,
Laughed with your lover all night, without words
You watched your child grow into a man
Tears of joy when he said, he said, thanks

So you sailed again through the misty dawn
Past the broken ships, that jagged rocks, adorn
Then slowly paradise appears, its heaven sent, that all the pirates fear

You can never hide… till the ‘cane’s no more
