I wish I was a fisher man
My home is the sea
And when I get back to land
My saviour is waiting for me
And he’ll give me a crown
It is made of gold
And he’ll say well done
You were a magic untold

Say the words now and I’ll go I’ll go I’ll go
Say the words now and I’ll go I’ll go I’ll go

I could die any day now,
It’s not either fair or unfair
And I could walk through that tunnel of light
And lead the rest of you there

Say the words now and I’ll go I’ll go I’ll go
Say the words now and I’ll go I’ll go I’ll go

Come crown on the floor
I am not yet reborn
Come whip come cross come Mary and grace
Cry quietly now
He didn’t fade

Say the words now and I’ll go I’ll go I’ll go
Say the words now and I’ll go I’ll go I’ll go

    My InterpretationI always thought this was about Jesus.

    "I wish I was a fisherman" I wish I was an apostle.

    "My savior is waiting for me" The savior being Jesus.

    "I could die any day now,
    It’s not either fair or unfair
    And I could walk through that tunnel of light
    And lead the rest of you there" That could be Jesus talking to the fisherman.

    "Say the word and I'll go" I'll do anything for Jesus

    I'm not religious at all but this is what comes to mind whenever I listen to this.
