Sailor Song (Live At the Old Queens Head) - Lyrics

With the first light and the little fragile moon
I was out on the porch now I'm ready for doom
And it's funny how it all came to be
The way you so plainly choose to stare at me

And the afternoon's embracing you like a million worried hands
And I want to look forward, go discover foreign land
In the mirror I was balancing on tiny strings
It looks silly but, oh really, it's just a physical thing

So tell me why you'd ask me to do as I please
I would rather fall backwards and forget everything
And I've tried to call on you when I know you're not home
I'm not ready for this but it's the way it goes

It was easier when I knew nothing of what I'd missed
You're so happy I can see it and that's the worst part of it
So let her take you out on sea
I will wave to you from the harbor, oh, little silly me

The sailors leave in the morning
I'll be waiting for you all night
The ship sets off in the morning
I'll be waiting for you all right

All night
All night
All night
All night
