Ship Of Fools Lyrics

by Robert Plant

On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self-control
I can't rely on anymore
New tides surprise my world it's changing
Within this frame an ocean swells
Behind this smile, I know it well

Beneath a lover's moon, I'm waiting
I am the pilot of the storm
Adrift in pleasure I may drown
I built this ship, it is my making
And furthermore my self-control
I can't rely on anymore

I know why, I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around
Back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no

Who claims that no man is an island
While I land up in jeopardy
More distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet, eternity
Tries ever sweeter plans for me

I know why, I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Oh, crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around
Back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no, ship of fools

Turn this boat around
Back to my loving ground, oh no

Crazy on a ship of fools
Oh, crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around
Back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no, ship of fools
