Текст The Longest Johns — Bones in the Ocean

Oh, I bid farewell to the port and the land
And I paddle away from Brave England’s white sands
To search for my long ago forgotten friends
To search for the place I hear all sailors end
As the souls of the dead fill the space of my mind
I’ll search without sleeping til’ peace I can find
I fear not the weather, I fear not the sea
I remember the fallen… do they think of me?
When their bones in the ocean, forever will be

Plot a course to the night, to a place I once knew
To a place where my hope died along with my crew
So I swallow my grief and face life’s final test
T’ find promise of peace and the solace of rest
As the souls of the dead fill the space of my ears

Their laughter like children, their beckoning cheers
My heart longs to join them, sing songs of the sea
I remember the fallen… do they think of me?
When their bones in the ocean, forever will be
When at last, before my ghostly shipmates I stand
I shed a small tear for my home upon land
Though their eyes speak of depths filled with struggle and strife
Their smiles below say I don’t owe them my life
As the souls of the dead fill the space of my eyes
And my boat listed over and tried to capsize
I’m this far from drowning, this far from the sea
I remember the living… do they think of me?
When my bones in the ocean, forever will be
Now the time’s staring down at the darkest abyss
I’m not sure what I want, but I don’t think it’s this
As my comrades call to stand fast and forge on…
I make sail for the dawn until the darkness has gone
As the souls of the dead live fore’er in my mind
As I live all the years that they left me behind
I’ll stay on the shore but still gaze at the sea
I remember the fallen and they think of me
For our souls in the ocean, together we’ll be
I remember the fallen and they think of me…
For our souls in the ocean, together we’ll be
