Captain's glory
The trumpets will sound
I'm unfamiliar
You're under the ground
And I tried crying
But strength was unveiled
You left us you bastard
You left us to sail

And I won't, let you down.
No I won't, let you down.

And in the winters
I need you around
I still feel sorrow
And I still write it down
And my children they're just fine
They'd have loved you, you know
Their father's a captain
With a beard just like you

And I won't, let you down
No I won't, let you down

    General CommentThe captain has died, but the ship sails on.

    The narrator has become the next captain, and he swears to the captain

    "and i won't, let you down"

    great song and great ending to an epic CD.

    General Commentwhat's heartbreaking about this is in the song "right away, great captain" the sailor says outright, "please dont leave me." and by the end, everyone he has ever loved has left him. his wife, his children, and now even the man he confided in, who he loved more than his wife, is gone.
