Blind Faith - Sea Of Joy Lyrics




Following the shadows of the skies or are they only figments of my eyes?
And I'm feeling close to where the race is run
Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

Once the door swings open into space and I'm already waiting in disguise
Or is it just a thorn between my eyes?

Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy
Having trouble coming through, through this concrete, blocks my view
And it's all because of you

Or is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

Blind Faith Sea Of Joy Comments
  1. J.... J....

    You can hear Steve's voice echoing in the booth. Real conviction. Just wild.

  2. o.... ....

    one of the greatest songs of the era - has everything

  3. l.... c....

    Ric Grech's Violin and bass on this song are absolutely MAGICAL !

  4. K.... G....

    Waiting in our boats to set sail..sea of joy❤️2020 in Christ our Lord who this whole lp is about

    K.... G....

    Perhaps sooner than we think our ship will set sail for a better place.🌞🚢

  5. J.... B....

    Read the Vedas!

  6. J.... B....

    I remember 1970 or so I did some lsd walking in the canyons of san diego! Crying because I knew I was not the body!!!!!! I went to India! Saw Jim Morrison! at a Temple eating vegitairian food! Break On Through! the other side!

  7. R.... W....

    This song always reminds me of those fresh, Florida mushrooms... Whew! What a ride.

  8. N.... D....

    Why does nobody mention Ric Grech when talking about Blind Faith? His violin solo on this song is one of the best moments on the whole album.

    N.... D....

    Ned D.
    1 month ago I agree! Ric Grech, and his talents are magical here !

  9. J.... M....

    Una de mis rolas favoritas....ese biolin......yeah....!

  10. C.... R....

    Baker ,may have been the last person Eric wanted to have crash the first rehearsals ,but Ginger was perfect addition. Rick Grech a solid bass player was rooted in a traditionally fundamental role& was no Jack Bruce which suited everyone just fine.Without the battles of ego & will that consumed Cream to it's early extinction,Blind Faith could build upon the 'Never Ending Story".However it was not to be.Ginger's roller coaster heroin use pulled Eric further into it as well.But that one studio album,with it's beautiful assortment of songs has withstood the test of time...and Stevie was it's voice.

    THANKS CHASE ANOTHER GEM IVE SEEN ALOT OFYOUR GD GEMS THANK YOU

  12. G.... G....

    Wonderful 🥰

  13. H.... ....

    Clapton knows what to play and when to play it

  14. P.... K....

    It was on 'Blind Faith, i.e. fait accompli -- as said by Eric Clapton, to let [ the cantankerous Ginger Baker - RIP Oct 2019 ] into the group to begin with.

  15. D.... W....

    and i ain't done nothin' wrong, still i can't find my way home

    D.... W....

    You're on The Sea of Joy now but I do hope some day you will find your way home. BTW Jesus Saves....

  16. k.... h....

    Reminds me of girl that isnt part of my life anymore

    k.... h....

    Same. Heard this when I was 16and tripping around.

  17. c.... s....

    I had the original album cover in 1980. It kinda sad and sick, but the music inside is beautiful.....TJ STRUSKA

  18. j.... n....

    i have loved this tune for a very long time. 49 years.

  19. a.... g....

    Or is it pedophilia????
    Damn
    The picture of a girl????
    SHIT
    Fooled again ?????

  20. a.... D....

    Went round a friends house when I was 15 and 1st heard "history Of Eric Clapton" on vinyl (Never yet released on cd). On hearing this, it sent shivers down my spine and all the hairs stood to attention. The 1st ever song that did this to me.

  21. T.... S....

    I love this cover girl so much! Iam 30...

  22. J.... R....

    We are a unique group... the visitors here at this site.

  23. T.... S....

    song just came to me thankx for the post great tune to chillax to after a day of workin fer the man

  24. n.... ....

    . . . when music was Music

  25. c.... m....

    This is my most favorite musical piece amount all others of B F

  26. C.... M....

    Few songs have held up better.

  27. J.... R....

    The calaboration was so good the one album was enough...
    Plus everyone was busy on many projects... and remember you had to make time to love your girlfriend...back when there were girlfriends instead of hateful feminist.

  28. J.... J....

    If they don't play this at my hippy-themed funeral that I requested, I will jump from the casket and start punching on.

    J.... J....

    Same here man, got something arranged myself. I wish to be around for a while yet obviously. I wrote a note to family if my ashes are left up on a garage shelf I'll come back and haunt you all big time! Lol Peace.

    J.... J....

    Sometimes this song is the only remedy for me. I think I was probably 11 when it came out. Older brothers, thank God. Steppenwolf was my first favorite band, one had the album early Steppenwolf, before Cream and Hendrix albums. The Doors grabbed my soul and still have it, I guess pink Floyd was the first band I found myself, their musical education was deep & broad. I don't know where either of them are, just lost track of them during the landline days. Truck driver dad, we moved a lot. Thankful for the musical legacy they gave me. It's been so long since I've seen them, it would be strange to see them now. I guess I could tell them our parents died. Strange how things work out, close family and I never expected it to happen.

  29. m.... s....

    Beware of Mr. Baker!

  30. a.... D....

    1st heard this on History Of Eric Clapton (LP). I was 14 and this not only made the hairs stand up but I could feel that tears wanted to roll due to the expression in the way Steve sung it. It still comes back today and haunts me whenever I hear it. Total expression in singing can be very powerful.

  31. D.... ....

    Listening to this makes me feel Luke I'm on a musical journey. Love the video too.

  32. J.... A....

    Great band with greats musicians!!
    I like

  33. c.... ....

    the two violin tracks make this track really really special <3

  34. H.... W....

    I've always considered this a late-rock (that is developed rock, late sixties to early seventies) classic, comparable to "Stairway to Heaven", "Layla", and "July Morning". I'm amazed so few remember it. The lyric is a bit inscrutable, but I always understand it and "Stairway to Heaven" an auguring of the counter-culture eschaton.

  35. J.... W....

    Great Song . . Great Time . . .Gad . . can you imagine what it must have been like during this period . . the world changing and young people in the throws of early adulthood? . . . I know many here do . . I do too . . and I wish we all had another shot . . wouldn't it be grand? . .

  36. E.... M....

    Need to bring back those days of meaning and hope. YEAH

  37. J.... K....

    Fucking love this tune. Winwood is amazing. What a band.

  38. S.... E....

    Naw you ain't big enough

  39. R.... M....

    The best. Takes me back to my youth in small town ontario canada. Timeless.

  40. A.... O....

    Great song. The guitar riff is stellar, too.

  41. R.... B....

    This song is all about the vocals and the melody. Eric and Ginger put it in the top tier of great songs from a beautiful album. I remember when it came out, sitting in my apartment in Santa Monica enjoying the fragrant sea breeze that blew in off the Pacific (six blocks away, $90 a month for three of us, $30 each! I was late only once!) every afternoon. God had a good plan when he got these guys together to play. Beautiful music!

    R.... B....

    People who under 8 Eric Clapton should listen to this

  42. D.... Q....

    Beautiful song ... got to admire Stevie's vocal power and range ... Eric, a rare out-of-tune note @ 2:42 ... maybe an open string ...?

  43. A.... B....

    Amii no me interesa

    A.... B....

    Disculpen amigos si me interesa la musica rovk

    A.... B....

    Exselente musica de

  46. K.... G....

    SeA of joy 2018

  47. J.... O....

    Traffic with Eric Clapton. Nice.

  48. Y.... ....

    I just heard about this song on the movie Fata morgaana from werner herzo

  49. T.... ....

    Rick Grech's understated violin really helps this one flow....

  50. D.... ....

    Great song, great video, great band

  51. M.... ....

    Just incredible. How I wish they made more music like this.

  52. r.... b....

    Great band ! Because is over ?

    r.... b....

    because é porque pra justificar, why é por que para perguntar

    r.... b....

    a banda acabou pq o eric clapton tava insatisfeito com a qualidade das musicas e das performances

  53. R.... W....

    Steve Winwood should always be remembered for the fact that he got it through Eric Clapton's thick skull that he could not only play guitar, bu t could sing as well!

  54. R.... J....

    Such a beautiful opening song to perhaps the premiere album of the rock era.

  55. E.... v....

    absolutely brilliant for ever and ever...

  56. K.... W....

    my band is called atomic waste

  57. D.... C....

    Deliciously simply splendiferous!

  58. K.... G....

    Waiting in our boats

  59. K.... G....

    Makes me cry

  60. K.... G....

    So beautiful

  61. D.... M....

    Aaaah, Stevie Winwood! Hadn't heard this song for 40 years, but I remember everything!

    D.... M....

    Where have you been? :)

  62. j.... b....

    Year 1969-1970

  63. h.... ....

    Pretty sure lyrics are in reference to the heroin trip.

  64. R.... B....

    I was stoked when this band got together. And totally disappointed when they broke up.

  65. J.... M....

    hola hola se antoja un L S D.

  66. r.... s....

    I HEARD THIS AND I SAID SCOTTY? WHAT IS A LATENT HOMOSEXUAL?

    r.... s....

    That's just LOVE, baby. Cosmic Love.

  67. r.... s....

    Back in my day it was called a latent homo-sexual ? Now wht the fuck is a latent homosexual?? I had to ask me that question??????????????????????????????

  68. L.... K....

    Sea Of Joy is timeless classic!!!

  69. M.... D....

    What a voice! The best white soul.

  70. B.... ....

    Awesome song & album

  71. K.... P....

    Derpy looking girl on that cover.

  72. g.... ....

    Yeah, just a fantastic piece of work.  Polished.

  73. s.... L....

    Probably one of the most UNDER-rated songs ever.

    s.... L....

    Under rated is an over rated term.

    s.... L....

    "Under-rated" is an over-used and mis-used term. This great song is NOT under-rated. It was just missed by way too many people.

  74. F.... ....

    Hauntingly beautiful ....timeless

  75. S.... L....

    Is it wrong to prefer this song to Presence Of The Lord?

    S.... L....

    Scott Lewis I'm not sure man...they are both awesome

  76. d.... b....

    great song when you're sailing

  77. R.... m....

    wonderful music

  78. T.... H....

    Winwood is the master of his art, superb!

  79. G.... G....

    AMO!!!!!!

  80. F.... Y....

    This was Clapton's anthem to 'HEROIN'. Eric was a 'Poor Man's Picaso', fucking dig it when you're high !

  81. C.... ....

    2:45 - Ric Grech on violin!

  82. m.... k....

    This is gorgeous...can not describe the feeling I get every time I listen to this song as it speaks to my Soul!

  83. D.... R....

    They left us wanting more, much more...

  84. M.... C....

    Stevie ₩. made it "clear from the jump" that the band would be Short Lived🎤🎧🎩🏰🇬🇧🎭 Super~Star gps. were under some much Preesure by the demand of the powerful music industry...Eric was so fragile @ the time⌛Ginger was a plain Madman...Ric G. was about the only sane 1.

  85. m.... t....

    Not ahead of their time... a good example of their time.

  86. P.... L....

    Most excellent tune!

  87. m.... t....

    Wow... Does this wonderful piece capture and help define our loving culture back then?

  88. J.... F....

    Nice violin tracks by Ric Grech on this classic. A little too much drinkin' though. Died at age 43.

    h.... ....

    Yep, very sad. Dived head first into a bottle of Glenmorangie and never came out.

    h.... ....

    Heard he liked the Big H also..

  92. J.... H....

    clapton is god

  93. P.... L....

    This song made my Bose speakers smoke,HAD THE VOLUME UP TO MAXIUM OUTPUT,no song has ever done that to my speakers,I think I will get liquid cooler speakers next time I listen to this song on high volume,the song is simply outstanding!!

  94. L.... C....

    Vísteme despacio porque tengo prisa.

  95. G.... H....

    Nice photos and graphics. Beautiful, beautiful, uniqe song.

  96. L.... ....

    Underrated brilliance

    L.... ....

    +LuckyLucy Don't think Blind Faith was ever considered underrated besides perhaps Ric Grech who plays an awesome violin solo here....

  97. D.... P....

    A sea of joy is waiting for us all. Just tune out of the
    shit that is passing for music out there and listen to this and all the music
    from the sixties. Although Pearl Jam is really good too, Sea of Joy is sublime. A pinnacle of the evolution or music. This is the past I would like to live in. Even with Nixon and Vietnam, there was peace or more
    precisely harmony in our thoughts of what humankind could be or become. We have
    been waiting too long not to be able to enjoy such an existence. So instead I
    choose to live inside my own mind and reject or become detached from the
    reality that is today. Especially since “the ogre” has been elected President
    of the United States.

    D.... P....

    David Papazian well said

    D.... P....

    well said but please don't leave out "It's a Beautiful Day" White Bird

    D.... P....

    Although this post is a year old, I could not agree more, on everything you said. And, "White Bird" is a fantastic tune! Just listen to the violin.

    D.... P....

    Go Trump/Pence!

    D.... P....

    David, I am 61, a poet, I also live in that reality myself. You sound like a kindred spirit...TJ STRUSKA

  98. A.... S....

    Steve Winwood- Absolutely top

  99. S.... B....

    Good music never dies, it flows from generation to generation, as witnessed here, just like the sea. Thank You Blind Faith.
