Lovesick

Many a long year have I sailed my little ship on the high, sighing seas

I know the hunger of a sailor’s heart and the taste of the salty breeze

The sea is as stormy as a rose is thorny

I sail through storms of depression and anxiety

No matter how far I sail, it seems the sea won’t bring you back to me

I know somewhere the sun is shining, some other place, some other time

You are across the ocean blue

That’s why I am so blue

That’s why the sea is salty

Many a long year have I cried a tear and yet the ocean holds more

More than all the sorrow from all the tomorrows of the lovelorn sailors longing for the shore

I know the hunger of a sailor’s heart

I know the distance that we’re apart

I know the courage of a captain

I know the past and what’s happenin’

Many a long year have I cried a tear

And nobody knows but the sea
