lyrics

Gonna throw my anchor down
Gonna hold my head up high
Gonna claim this brave new world
In the name of you and I

Gonna throw my anchor down
Gonna hold my head up high
Gonna claim this brave new world
In the name of you and I

I’m leaving behind everything I know
to follow the calling deep within my soul
Don’t know what awaits me on the distant shore
But the sweet siren song, I can no more ignore

Dreams I have aplenty, possessions I have few
My compass it is broken, but my heart is true
The waters they are fearsome and dangers do abound
The passage way is scattered with ships that ran aground

If I can make my way, if I can soldier on
the life that I once knew, will be dead and gone
and that golden prize will at last be won

So I’m
Gonna throw my anchor down
Gonna hold my head up high
Gonna claim this brave new world
In the name of you and I

Gonna throw my anchor down
Gonna hold my head up high
Gonna claim this brave new world
In the name of you and I
