Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I don't know what day it is,
Or if it's dark out there;
Somehow that's just the way it is,
And I don't really care!
Verse 2
I go to this or that place,
I seem alive and well,
My head is just a hat place,
My breast an empty shell,
And I've a faded dream to sell.
Verse 3
All alone and all at sea,
Why does nobody care for me?
When there's no love to hold my love,
Why is my heart so frail,
Like a ship without a sail?
Verse 4
Out on the ocean,
Sailors can use a chart;
I'm on the ocean,
Guided by just a lonely heart!
Verse 5
Still alone, all at sea,
Still there's no-one to care for me.
When there's no hand to hold my hand,
Life is a loveless tale,
Like a ship without a sail.
Verse 6
Still alone, all at sea,
Still there's no-one to care for me.
When there's no hand to hold my hand,
Life is a loveless tale,
But a ship without a sail.
