On a ship

I’ve packed my bags, I’m running away

I’m travelling North, so get out of the way

The past is behind me and I’m looking ahead

Can you see who I am hanging on by a thread

I waited a while to see if you’d come along

You had other ideas and took it all wrong

Now my time’s run out and I have to go

Will you say goodbye to all the people I know

On a ship, out at sea

All my dreams come back to me

We weathered the storm and I look at the sea

The welling waves washing over me

To keep my dream alive I left you behind

I am crossing the water but you’re still on my mind

The waves of doubt have crashed ashore

Where’s the new life, open the door

Come take the plunge, I wish you were here

Bring on tomorrow, I want you near

On a ship, out at sea

All my dreams come back to me

Wind blows cool across my face

A perfect day to leave this place
