I grew this beard, on a life boat built for two
Been sailing the world alone with a portrait of you
I drink all my tears, before I go to bed, I sigh
Once again marooned on this desert isle

I am the captain who braved the seven seas
I am your captain at ease
Whisper to me, willows, tell me that it's not my fault
Tell me all the answers, tell me or I'll never know

Void of all emotion, like a crater on the moon
There were once traces of human life now invisible to you
I left a message but no
Trying to reach the stars with a mega-phone

I am the captain who braved the seven seas
I am your captain at ease
Whisper to me, willows, tell me that it's not my fault
Tell me all the answers, tell me or I'll never know

You see this scar, don't you know I should have died?
In the belly of the whale, even Jonah cried
Take all my years, and spin them into gold
I'm the richest man the stories never told

I am the captain who braved the seven seas
I am your captain at ease
Whisper to me, willows, tell me that it's not my fault
Tell me all the answers, tell me or I'll never know
