The Captain of the Ship

Your world is getting smaller
And the story is the same
As it goes ’round again
It goes ’round again
Your story is a sad one
And you still feel the pain
As it goes ’round again
It goes ’round again

You were the Captain of the ship
And you sailed across the world
Now your world is shrinking every hour every day
You were the Captain of the ship
But you have lost your way

So many miles you walked alone
When you were just fourteen
Is goes ’round again
It goes ’round again
No shoes, no food, no family
Your home a distant dream
As it goes ’round again
It goes ’round again

I see you on the edges
And you don’t understand
As it goes ‘Round again
It goes ’round again
There’s a fog rolling in
And you can’t see the land
As it goes ’round again
It goes ’round again

So pack your story in your heart and catch the tide once more
As you sail away
Your family are all waiting for you
You can hear them call as you sail away

You are the Captain of the ship
And you’ve sailed the world around
Now you’re homeward bound
Call the harbour pilot to guide you into shore
You are the Captain of the ship and the ship can sail once more

You are the Captain of the ship
And you’ve sailed the world around
Now you’re homeward bound
Calling heaven’s pilot to guide you into shore
You are the Captain of the ship and the ship can sail no more
