about

I wrote this song the morning after my mother passed away unexpectedly. To me, a sea worthy vessel is a rare thing. Praised for its strength on harsh seas while at the same time admired for its beauty. Fitting, it seems.

In loving memory of Linda Dubuc

lyrics

Now the ship has sailed
Now the ship has sailed

To some other beautiful harbor
To some other port in the storm
She raises her mast
The wind is her breath
As she gracefully sails the sea

Now the ship has sailed
Now the ship has sailed

We stand on the shore to watch her
And applaud as she sails away
As strong in the storm as she is in the calm
Steady, strong and true

Now the ship has sailed
Now the ship has sailed

I remember her anchored in the harbor and covered with birds
While the waves crashed around her still she sat on top of the world

Now the ship has sailed
Now the ship has sailed

about

Pete Dubuc Portland, Maine

"'The Ship' will tear your heart out with its honesty.

"...an emotional ride, one of great testimony to love, relationships and death."

"In a world where new musicians seem to be trying every little trick in the book to get noticed, Dubuc's style is a welcome, simple one."
