When your love caught hold of me
I was drinking Guinness on my own
Fastest pint I ever drank
I swung onto the street believing
My news would go to print by morning

I sang a song to Mark
It was an acorn of a song
It was a toy song for grown-ups
A paper song that stood up in the lamplight
Both of us sang harmonies we didn't understand

You are my captain
And I am open
To every course that we might sail
Because I need you
I need the daylight
The day within you
The morning's quiet passed before the morning sun

When your love caught hold of me
I dropped what I was holding
Or fell off my chair, one or the other
I think we stand to gain by being lovers
Or others stand to gain from it
One or the other, maybe both

You are my captain
And I am open
To every course that we might sail
Because I need you
I need the daylight
The day within you
The morning's quiet passed before the morning sun
Passed along the morning shore
