Dear Victoria, captain my heart
I’ll rest forever in your watery arms
for this life is not as it seems
nor all the nights you'll lie awake

Down by the whispering embankment
your words will set sail down the Thames
and ten years from now they'll all wash up
for our children to read on the banks

And oh, how you begged me to love you
I held you then turned you away
Inside me it was so much different
but oh, it never escaped

And I can't tell one from the other
I mistrust them all and I run
The clocktower tolls, our loss can't be won
but I'll hold my breath 'til our story
is done

Dear Victoria, captain my heart
I'll rest forever in your watery arms
for this life is not as it seems
nor all the nights you'll lie awake
away from me

Dear Victoria, captain my heart
I'll rest forever in your watery arms
for this life is not as it seems
nor all the nights you'll lie awake
