The Longest Johns - Bones In The Ocean Lyrics

Verse 1
Oh, I bid farewell to the port and the land
And I paddle away from Brave England's white sands
To search for my long ago forgotten friends
To search for the place I hear all sailors end

Chorus 1
As the souls of the dead fill the space of my mind
I’ll search without sleeping 'til peace I can find
I fear not the weather, I fear not the sea
I remember the fallen, do they think of me?
When their bones in the ocean forever will be

Verse 2
Plot a course to the night, to a place I once knew
To a place where my hope died along with my crew
So I swallow my grief and face life's final test
T’ find promise of peace and the solace of rest

Chorus 2
As the souls of the dead fill the space of my ears
Their laughter like children, their beckoning cheers
My heart longs to join them, sing songs of the sea
I remember the fallen, do they think of me?
When their bones in the ocean forever will be

Verse 3
When at last before my ghostly shipmates I stand
I shed a small tear for my home upon land
Though their eyes speak of deaths filled with struggle and strife
Their smiles below say I don't owe them my life

Chorus 3
As the souls of the dead fill the space of my eyes
And my boat listed over and tried to capsize
I'm this far from drowning, this far from the sea
I remember the living, do they think of me?
When my bones in the ocean forever will be

Bridge
Now that I'm staring down at the darkest abyss
I'm not sure what I want, but I don't think it's this
As my comrades call to stand fast and forge on
I make sail for the dawn 'til the darkness has gone

Chorus 4
As the souls of the dead live forever in my mind
As I live all the years that they left me behind
I’ll stay on the shore but still gaze at the sea
I remember the fallen and they think of me
For our souls in the ocean together will be

Outro
I remember the fallen and they think of me
For our souls in the ocean together will be
