» A Sailor Out of Grace With The Sea

Lyrics

I met a man - the gentle son on a drinking clan


To please his dad - he took to the sea and left the land.


A nagging doubt - to follow in his father’s steps


He tried his best – but found he couldn’t measure up.


 


Do you love the land? Do you love the sea?


Do you want to marry? Do you just want me?


All of these questions you are asked so confusingly


If you’re a sailor out of grace with the sea.


 


 


He lived his life – torn by convention and desire.


No place for love – became a hypocrite and a liar.


No help from home – a drunken woman and a violent man.


Life’s lessons learnt – smother feelings to become a man.                          Chorus


 


 


Crises will happen, freezing bottles will explode.


Nature will tap into a molten motherlode.


You can’t refuse the body’s base desires


One small fuse will serve to start the fire.


 


 


So when at last – he laid his burden at my feet


Felt like his last gasp – did not know love could be so sweet.


There in my arms - demands of nature held their sway


No turning back – had to let feelings show the way.


 


Do you want to marry? Do you just want me?


All of these questions you are asked so confusingly


If you’re a sailor out of grace with the sea.
