"Sailor" as written by and Rod/wood Stewart....
The sea pounds so hard against this old ship
Where he had only one wish
Home is so far from his memory
The ships old wet deck is all his family
Two days worth of storm had broken the ships tired mast and captain

The sea pounds so hard against this old ship
Where he'd had only one wish
God is gone now is all that he knew
They saw that last wave come and he knew that he was through

    General CommentThe absolutely amazing thing about this song is that the guitars are simulating the sounds waves make as they go up and down and finally crash against something. It's like the setting is being painted by the words and the music. The tension of this song picks up to give the listener the impression of the storm is getting worse and the ship is slowly losing the fight. Absolutely brilliant song.

    Song MeaningIn my opinion...

    This song is a metaphor about someone who died, literally or figuratively, of sadness and depression.

    Great song, full of emotions.
