Sail On Sailor Lyrics

by Golden Earring

I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean
Through restful waters
And deep commotion
Often frightened, unenlightened

Sail on, sail on sailor
I wrest the waters, fight Neptunes waters
Sail through the sorrow
Of lifes marauders

Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor
Caught like a sewer rat
Alone but I sail

Bought like a crust of bread, oh, did I wail
Seldom stumble, never crumble
Try to tumble, lifes a thrumble
Feel the stinging, Ive been given

Never ending, unrelenting
Haertbreak searing, always fearing
Never clearing, persevering
Sail on, sail on sailor

I work the sea, ways
The gale swept seaways
Past shipwrecked daughters
Of wicked waters

Uninspired, drenched and tired, sail on sailor
Always needing, even bleeding
Never feeding, all my feelings
Damn the thunder, must I blunder

Theres no wonder, all Im under
Stop the crying and the lying
And the sighing and my dying
Sail on, sail on sailor
