I Used To Be A Sailor lyrics

i used to be a sailor
who sailed across the seas
but now i'm just an island
since they took my boat away from me
oh no
i don't like being stationary
i like the rocky wavy motions of the sea
i sit and rot behind these padded walls
hoping one day they'll fall
and set me free

he wrote his epitaph
he wrote his eulogy
it said 'i think that i can die now
for my true love won't come for me'
oh no

i don't like being stationary
i like the rocky wavy motions of the sea
i sit and rot behind these padded walls
hoping one day they'll fall
and set me free

i used to be a sailor
who sailed across the seas
but now i'm just an island
since they took my boat away from me
oh no

i don't like being stationary
i like the rocky wavy motions of the sea
i sit and rot behind these padded walls
hoping one day they'll fall
and set me free

set me free
set me free
set me free
