Life at Sea

lyrics

In the middle of this war we wage
With the other side of the world
I've found myself a light
In the eyes of an Irish girl

They sing to me so softly
I get lost in her smile
And then I forget the world
If only for a little while

And that's just what I need
Is another damn distraction
In a life at sea

I feel like a man on fire
In the face of the ocean breeze
Or the light of a funeral pyre
Through the tops of the tall, tall trees

A beacon or illusion?
The faith of a man exiled
Extinguished but so soothing
If only for a little while

And that's just what I need
Is a fleeting glimpse of hope
In a life at sea

When the heavens open wide
May the waters wash me clean
For we live our whole damn lives
In these ships of steel and steam

In this mass confusion
I feel like a little child
But it helps me forget the girl
If only for a little while

And that's just what I need
May love provide a purpose
For your life at sea
