So, when the sailor asked the question
I really didn’t get it, so politely I just smiled
Well, he just nodded and sighed
Then he took a sip and told me ‘bout the ocean

And as his words started to pierce my mind
There came a squeeze deep in my chest
I always felt but would suppress
Oh and then I realized
That this was just a feeling of pure longing

Is this all you want in life?

And as I looked into the mirror
I first saw myself, then someone else
And in the end...nobody there
Oh, what if all my life it was just a mean
To flee from my own longing?

When I listen to the waves at night
They tell me first I need to find myself
And as I drift away I remember what the sailor had to say:

Is this what you want from life?
Without asking yourself why
Does this feel like lying to yourself?
