David Leonard: Music

That Ship Has Sailed

David Leonard

Our global ship is jammed on a reef, I'd say.  SOS!!  Rick Derringer saves the day, though--with his blistering lead guitar work.

Time waits for no one and the hour’s late
There is no winning hand in tempting fate
Save your riches in an hourglass
Or take your lashes strapped to the mast
The waves are crashing
The lightning flashing
No time to waste as we brave the gale
That ship has sailed

Shed no tears for what might have been
Waste no time on a shedded skin
Gather your children underneath your wings
We don’t know what the night will bring
