about

Certain that he will face his final demise in this dreadful storm, our hero reminisces about his childhood and why he put out to sea in the first place.

lyrics

Lyrics:
Bright sun, the day was young
I was only ten
I was strolling down the docks
When I was hollered by a pack of strange men
"Hey, kid, you look tough;
Wanna tag along?
We have got a sturdy carrack
With a jolly crew and lots of strong rum"

I never thought I'd leave my hometown
But I knew deep down it never felt like home to me

The journey's never ending
I know I've got no choice but to hold on
To whatever I can keep
From the moment that we set sail
I've known the only place where I belong
Is on the seven seas

Dark clouds, a storm was brewing
No land in sight
We'd been sailing straight for forty days
The captain started losing his mind
Cold wind, icy rain
I was standing watch
The waves grew by the second
We were all soon scattered around like floor mops

I never thought I'd leave my hometown
But I knew deep down it never felt like home
I'm just an undistinguished orphan
But I always dreamed that one day I would roam the sea

This storm is never ending
I know I've got no choice but to hold on
To whatever I can reach
From the moment that we set sail
I've known this is the place where I belong
Out on the seven seas

The freezing water hit me
Like a double wielded axe
I saw my whole life flash before my eyes
As the minutes passed
I remained conscious
Was I live or was I dead
What fate would I be granted
At the murky depths of the ocean bed

The ocean's never ending
I know I've got no choice but to hold on
To the only thing i know
From the moment that we set sail
I've known the only place where I belong
Is down with Davy Jones

In the arms of a mermaid
I'm lying so calm and unafraid
We belong to the ocean
I've waited so long for this closure
Now my time has come to pass
I'm home, I can rest in peace at last
