Franks, Michael - Lifeline Lyrics




Cast upon the wind
When it shifted I drifted
Without a star to steer by
Fowl weather took me by surprise
I felt the sea begin to rise...

You are my lifeline
When love ripped all my sails with rain
You saved me from this hurricane
You are my lifeline
Now I'm sailing toward the island of your love...

Sailing t'ward the island, sailing t'ward the island
Sailing t'ward the island of your love...

Hurled upon the reef
No lighthouse, no goodnight house
Upon my broken ship
I found no shelter anywhere
Until I saw your...

You are my lifeline
When love ripped all my sails with rain
You saved me from this hurricane
You are my lifeline
Now I'm sailing toward the island of your love...

Sailing t'ward the island, sailing t'ward the island
Sailing t'ward the island of your love...

    I still cry - thank you professor.

    Sleeping Gypsy and Tiger in The Rain are, far and away, his finest albums in my judgement!

    Lyrics
    Cast upon the wind
    When it shifted i drifted
    Without a star to steer by
    Fowl weather took me by suprise
    I felt the sea begin to rise.
    You are my lifeline
    When love ripped all my sails with rain,
    You saved me from this hurricane,
    You are my lifeline
    Now im sailing toward the island of your love.
    Sailing t'ward the island, sailing t'ward the island
    Sailing t'ward the island of your love (x2)
    Hurled upon the reef
    No lighthouse, no goodnight house
    Upon my broken ship
    I found no shelter anywhere
    Until i saw your ...
    You are my lifeline
    When love ripped all my sails with rain,
    You saved me from this hurricane,
    You are my lifeline
    Now im sailing toward the island of your love.
    Sailing t'ward the island, sailing t'ward the island
    Sailing t'ward the island of your love (x2)

  10. Frédéric Jacquet

    Believe me or not..when MF came in Festival de Jazz de Vienne in France in 1988....When he finished his concert...all the 3500 people seated in the Roman amphitheater didn t move for 20 minutes...we were all hyptnotysed by Michael.. he sets such a peacefull armosphere that we where envaulted...totally unable to move to go bck home...to go back to our stressfull lives....amazing Michael. Saale in Minneapolis in 1985 wherz the concert room wass terribly not set for electric instruments...Michael was so Zen....unbelievable...

    Heard Michael Franks newest 2011 song on a smooth jazz station and got nostalgic for music from this album. Thankfully, most of "Tiger In The Rain" is being posted on Youtube.

  18. Roberto Bernardo

    @ fsulka, i hope you'd also had the chance to check out his earlier albums i.e...sleeping gypsy, art of tea & one bad habit...it's like he's on the pinnacle of his career...his best produce!

  19. fsulka

    Michael Franks is an artist that few know. Listen to this song and wonder why he is unknown. He is a musical treasure. I've loved his music since the Camera Never Lies. Google it.
