„Taking on water
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory
A fantasy
The wind carries into white water
Far from the islands
Don't you know…
You're never going to get to France
Mary, queen of chance, will they find you!
Never going to get to France…
Could a new romance ever bind you?“

Song lyrics, Discovery (1984)
