Sailor Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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 chose to stare at me
Verse 2
And the afternoon embraces 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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
