We've been sweethearts for so long
Now you say we're through
The love we shared is just a memory
Well, I had built a ship of dreams
And planned them all for you
Now I guess what is to be will be

So I'll sail my ship alone
With all the dreams I own
Drifting out across the ocean blue
I'll sail my ship alone
Tho' all the sails are torn
And when it starts to sink
Then I'll blame you

I gave a message to the wind
To take back home to you
Hoping you would hear my SOS
Hoping that you would come back home
My darling, if you knew
Just how much my heart was in distress

I'll sail my ship alone
With all the dreams I own
Drifting out across the ocean blue
Yes, I'll sail my ship alone
Tho' all the sails you've torn
And when it starts to sinkin'
I'll blame you

When it starts to sink
Then I'll blame you
