Compass card is spinning
Helm is swinging to and fro
Oh, where is the dog star
Oh, where's the moon

You're a lost sailor
You've been too long at sea

Some days the gales are howling
Some days the sea is still as glass
Oh, raise the main sail
Oh, lash the mast

You're a lost sailor
You've been too long at sea
Now the shorelines beckon
Yeah, there's a price for being free

Hear the sea birds cryin' and there's a ghost wind blowing
And it's calling you, to that misty swirling sea
Till the chains of your dreams are broken
No place in this world you can be

You're a lost sailor
You've been away too long at sea
Now the shorelines beckon
Yeah, there's a price for being free

Driftin', you're driftin'
Yeah, driftin' and dreamin'
'Cause there's a place you've never been
Maybe a place you've never seen now
You can hear them callin' on the wind

Oh, you drift your life away
[Incomprehensible]
Hey baby, drift your life away
Driftin' and dreamin'

Really goin' on a dream now
Really goin' on a dream, really goin' on a dream
Really goin' on a dream
