lyrics

Lyrics:

BONNET:
No stars tonight.
The sky is black
The ocean is black
We might be flying through the air.

“When I get better, Father,
Will you take me to sea?
Father?”

CREW:
I long for the day
When my ship leaves
The harbor.

BONNET:
When you get better…

BONNET & CREW:
We speed ahead and we’re pushed like a sliver of ecstasy.

BONNET:
Drifting in the hand of fortune, my son.
Strictly in the hand of fortune, my son.
Sweetly in the hand of fortune, we’re finally
Free!

BONNET & CREW:
The shore so far behind us!
Not even God can find us!
With a way-hay finally free
A way-hay finally free!
