Saint Helena
 
Lyrics
Goin' somewhere warmer for the Winter
Somewhere far from frost and snow
Calving from this glacier in a splinter
And tumbling into the floe

For too long imprisoned by wishin'
For too long frozen in fear
For too long trapped in indecision
Now at last a way to move stands clear
And I'm going somewhere warmer for the

January thaw
Sweetest thing you ever saw
Blinded by December
You might not remember light
at all

Drifting toward Saint Helena
Patron island of exiles
I will know her 'though I've never seen her
By her beauty and my own smiles

Goin' somewhere warmer for the Winter
Somewhere milder than I've ever been before
Pullin' for Saint Helena
Can't live without her anymore

Drifting toward Saint Helena
Patron island of exiles
I will know her 'though I've never seen her
By her beauty and my own smiles

And I'm going somewhere warmer for the
January thaw
Sweetest thing you ever saw
Blinded by December
You might not remember light
at all
