I been setting sails for north, going down the stream
Failed to take the wind with me
Now I am lost at sea

Going west to find some rest, to lay my broken bones
Wind was strong my sails broke down
Now I am lost at sea

- - -

Getting on a plane makes the distance short, though I'm flying all night long
2000 miles till the shit came down, and I realised the right wing it was gone 

Got on a car took a ride to you, was the only thing left to do
Half the way, oh, the wheels came down, now I'm sitting on the streets nothing to lose

 

Oh well, I, darling, lead a life down lost at sea
I have no compass with me to rest my broken bones
But if I ever manage aligning the sails to course
Well should I ever make it out of that mess the coast will clear and I'll finally reach the shore 

 

But if the sail is broke, the wheel comes down, your feet are sore, the wind is calm, then make the sea your home
And if the sail is broke, the wheel comes down, your feet are sore, the wind is calm, still I'll wait on the

 

Met you in the streets at night, walking on my own
I been drinking on my way, that's why, why my feet wouldnt carry me 

Asked me where I'm going to, you asked me where I was from
The booze drove me straight into your arms, that's why I said 'I guess now I'm with you'

 

So if you darling like me ever lost at sea
Just take this compass with you to rest your broken bones
And if you ever manage align the sails to course
Well should you ever make it out of this mess the coast will clear and you'll finally reach the shore

But if the sail is broke, the wheel comes down, your feet are sore, the wind is calm, then make the sea your home
Cause baby rather ten times die in the sail heralding your way to a new world then stand idly on the shore.
