the waves are shiny like a mirror
seagulls are circling above my head
a wanna-be sailorman is playing
his toy accordion

the sun ain't supposed to shine
this time of year
but it dries off this season's tears

it's been a long exhausting year
and I can tell now things have changed
like they always have

come on, sailorman
and sing for me
I'll be your lover sea
I'll be the wave that pulls you in

bury my shoes in the sand
throw my head in the neck
I want the seagulls to call me
I want my arms to turn to wings

the ships they come and go
leaving here for tokyo
nevermind the destination
gone is gone no matter where

the buzzing city on my back
the open sea in front of me
I choose water over wine
in case someone asks me

it's been a long exhausting year
and I can tell now that things change
like they always do

come on, sailorman
and sing for me
I'll be your lover sea
I'll be the wave that pulls you in

come on, sailorman
and sing for me
I'll be your lover sea
I'll be the wave that spits you out
