The Straits Of Gibraltar
(Steve Towson)

I'm waiting to receive a confirmation
So I can live with you
But something is wrong
Something is broken
My message it ain't getting through
So I pull these lips up to the receiver
But there's no connection there
And all of the while
The cycle continues
To spiral to despair

Oh but the straits of Gibraltar
Keeps on calling me to cross
The straits of Gibraltar
My hope lies beyond those rocks

Life and death, fear and security
All depend upon that sea
As the sands of chance keep on rising
Filling up the best of me
Ice white moons keep on moving
Casting shadows down in the path
Of the range of waves that I keep on climbing
How long can this treatment last
How long can the treatment last
How long can I last

The straits of Gibraltar
Keeps on calling me to cross
The straits of Gibraltar
My hope lies beyond those rocks
