I've been on a ship
Destined for greater things than these
I've been all around
So take me home
So take me home

Daddy's older now
And his boots have filled with salt
His life has changed somehow
As his eyes do
As the clothes he outgrew

Four hundred years on the great blue alone
He's renewed the life that he's had all along

I've been on a ship
Destined for greater things than these
I've been all around
So take me home
So take me home

If our brooms could speak
And our swords could raise themselves
Our lives lay incomplete
All brushed aside for a greater empire

Leave what we have to our God awful boat
The ocean's allowed us to all that we've done

I've been on a ship
Destined for greater things than these
I've been all around
So take me home
So take me home

Take me home
(I've been all around, all around)
Take me home
(I've been all around, all around)
Take me home
(I've been all around, all around)
Take me home

I've been on a ship
Destined for greater things than these
I've been all around
So take me home
So take me home
