Lyrics

Just after midnight
On the day after Valentine’s Day
She lay awake listening
To the storm blowing out on the bay
And her thoughts were on her man out on the sea
To give them a life, that was where he had to be

Just after midnight
On the day after Valentine’s Day
She lay awake thinking
About the last thing he had to say
Before he left, he said, “Wipe away that frown
“The devil himself couldn’t bring the Ocean Ranger down.”

But the sea can be a monster when it wants to be
Take man’s little toys and just sweep them away
And the ones left behind can only weep
And that’s the way it’ll always be.
And that’s the way it’ll always be.

Just after midnight
On the day after Valentine’s Day
She lay awake thinking
About her man out there on the sea
And she smiled as she drifted off to sleep
He’ll be home in my arms in less than a week.

But the sea can be a monster when it wants to be
Take someone you love and just sweep them away
And the hell with the ones left behind to weep
And that’s the way it’ll always be.
And that’s the way it’ll always be.
