lyrics

I was a sailor, sailing out from Spain
I'm sick of how those seas exhausted all my pain
Left my love to wander and you know that I'll pay the price
I'm heading further away and I'm praying on Jesus Christ

I traced the Fraser down to the coast
My love was left at home so I'll be sending her my ghost
I'll pass the time with liquor and sweet cocaine
I'm hoping before I die that somebody knows my name

How long can these days keep rolling on
Withdrawn my mind until it's gone
I've misplaced my sense of place too long ago
And now my bones they lie below

I've sailed the oceans and conquered every storm
I've seen America's best and my love is home to mourn
From the prairies I've waited out the snow
I'm packing my bag again and I'm heading down to Mexico

Jacques Cartier and the great white north
Saint Lawrence will save me and I'll be back by the fourth
Superior's waters have taken more than she's put
If my ship shall sink then I'll be going on light foot

How long can these days keep rolling on
Withdrawn my mind until it's gone
I've misplaced my sense of place too long ago
And now my bones they lie below

With the forthcoming release of songs off the debut album, audiences will be familiarized with sounds stemming both from hard-hitting past projects such as Tusk Mountain, as well as a new softer side which has grown off of experience as a solo singer-songwriter. ... more
