Verse 1:
Today I see myself for what I am, a wandering ship without a rudder
Yesterday’s become a wasted land, where all my hopes and dreams lie shattered
Standing here at the water’s edge, this question rises with the tide
Was it you who did the shattering, Or WAS IT I?

Chorus 1:
WAS IT I
Who wrecked my own ship?
WAS IT I
My voice rings cross the water?.
WAS IT I
Who shattered yesterday...

Who chose to wander?

Verse 2:
I left you out of all my dreams...pushed ahead to stake my claims
Fought you like a raging storm at sea, holding on to fruitless games
But time and tide wait for no man...I turn and once again you’re there
I sense this moment is the one for me ...to seize the gift you died to share

Chorus:
WAS IT I
Who wrecked my own ship?
WAS IT I
My voice rings cross the water.
WAS IT I
Who shattered yesterday...

Who chose to wander?

Verse 3:
Your peace warms me like the sun’s rays... I hear sounds like angels’ wings
All my yesterdays are washed away, and I am flooded with your lo-o-o-ove
I am flooded with your lo-o-o-ove
I am flooded with your love

WAS IT I
Who wrecked my own ship?
WAS IT I
My voice rings cross the water.
WAS IT I
Who shattered yesterday...

Who chose to wander?
WAS IT I...
Fade out
Who chose to wander?...
