Song Lyrics

Artist: Tracy Chapman

I Used To Be A Sailor  (448)

in English

I used to be a sailor
Who sailed across the seas
But now I'm just an island
Since they took my boat away from me
Oh no


I don't like being stationary
I like the rocky wavy motions of the sea
I sit and rot behind these padded walls
Hoping one day they'll fall
And set me free


He wrote his epitaph
He wrote his eulogy
It said 'I think that I can die now
For my true love won't come for me'
Oh no


I don't like being stationary
I like the rocky wavy motions of the sea
I sit and rot behind these padded walls
Hoping one day they'll fall
And set me free


I used to be a sailor
Who sailed across the seas
But now I'm just an island
Since they took my boat away from me
Oh no


I don't like being stationary
I like the rocky wavy motions of the sea
I sit and rot behind these padded walls
Hoping one day they'll fall
And set me free


Set me free

Set me free
Set me free
