Well I'm leaving my family
I'm leaving all my friends
My body's at home
But my heart's in the wind
And the clouds are like headlines
Upon a new front page sky
My tears are salt water
The moon's full and high

And I know Joe Conrad would be proud of me
Many before me been called by the sea
To be up in the crow's nest singing my saying
Shiver me timbers let's all sail away

And the fog lifting
The sand shifting
I'm drifting on out
Old Captain Ahab got nothing on me
Swallow me, don't follow me
I'm traveling alone
The water's my daughter
I skip like a stone

And the fog lifting
The sand shifting
I'm drifting on out
Old Captain Ahab got nothing on me
Swallow me, don't follow me
I'm traveling alone
The water's my daughter
I skip like a stone

Won't you please call my family
Tell them not to cry
My goodbyes are written
By the moon in the sky
Say nobody knows me
I've got no reason to stay
Shiver me timbers
I'm sailing away

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, laaaa
