Sailors Grave Lyrics

I once shared a drink with a sea-faring man
Had the look of the world in his eyes
We talked about love and life
Then he said, let me give you some advice

If it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
If it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
Then you'll be safe

If your ship sinks my dear there's no bringing it back
It belongs to the ocean floor
And if the hunger of lovers starts to turn into pain
Either sink with your ship, or get off

And if it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
If it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
Then you'll be safe

Roll it, oh roll it right over the edge
Let it sink to the depths of your soul
Leave it alone until you forget
Or have it haunt you until you get old

Roll it, oh roll it right over the edge,
Let it sink to the depths of your soul
Leave it alone until you forget
Or have it haunt you until you get old

And if it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
If it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
And if it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave
If it dies, bury your love in a Sailor's Grave

Then you'll be safe
