I signed on at the age of 21
The pay it was good and my body it was strong
But age came quickly and my youth it was gone
It fell beneath the waves but the ship still moves on and on

Tell my sister and tell my mom
Tell them i never meant to be gone this long
Give them kisses ask them not to loose faith
How far north can you go anyway?

How far north can you go anyways?
Sooner or later the direction has to change
Daily we move forwards but the compass stays the same
How far north can you go anyways?

Cold air has come and it's split my lip again
Makes my lungs burn everytime I breathe it in
Holes in my mittens and my jacket's starting to fray
How far north can you go anyway?

How many nights have I dreamt of home?
How many nights have I lay frozen and numb?
Breaking through late afternoon
hHow far north can you go anyways?
