The pirate’s waltz

hey, it’s hard to think that long ago
a few hundred years or so,
my heart was open, unbroken like a childs

I had been looking for a ray of light
for many days and many nights
oh, with nothing but the waves roaring in sight

see, I made friends with the fires
the sirens and the liars
desired someone to trust, heard them say;

burst and dive, start over your life
with us, before you give up
let yourself go for your love

go for you love, go for you love

and now I can’t see
anyone coming that close to me
not that easily, that easily

and that night my town saw me go
with a feeling I couldn’t show
held my hands on the wind, I let it blow

I was moving with the speed of light
for many days and many nights
to escape or to survive the biggest love of my life

I never questioned the waves
or the thousand of ways
I moved with the ghosts of my past

but one day winter froze
my lonely little boat
in the middle of the sea
and we had to wait ourselves free
the ghosts and me
the ghosts and me

and now I can’t see
anyone coming that close to me
not that easily, that easily

years later he took me to the dock, where the boats had gone to sleep

and I told him all my tales, I was lying when I told him they were sweet

all those things that we buried and denied, they were sinking down with me

and he’ll never have to know all the things I buried in the sea

buried in the sea, buried in the sea, buried in the sea
