Lyrics: A Sailor's Fascination

A Sailor's Fascination

1.      If I was a sailor, out there on the sea
I'd be searching the horizon for the places you might be
Climbing in the rigging, watching every ship that passed
If I ever saw your signal I'd be off that boat so fast
You'd never see me, 'til I'm staring in your eyes
Looking for you in the depths of your disguise

2.      If you were a mermaid, in that ocean deep and wide
Serenading sailing ships that pass on every side
Every man would listen as your music filled the air
And I'd better warn those sailors that they really should beware

'Cos you're a siren, singing siren songs and captivating hearts
Taking pilots where they don't belong and tearing ships apart
And each imagination holds you close in every thought
You’re the sailor’s fascination, you’re the girl in every port
You’re the girl they’re looking for in every port

3.      If I saw you standing lost and lonely on the shore
By the rocks where many sailors' hopes were dashed before
I'd navigate so close to you that you could step aboard
Then I'd show you all the qualities of love that you've ignored

And you're a siren, singing siren songs and captivating hearts
Taking pilots where they don't belong and tearing ships apart
And each imagination holds you close in every thought
You’re the sailor’s fascination, you’re the girl in every port
You’re the girl I’m looking for in every port

4.      And if I saw you sleeping, breathing easy in the night
Covered by the comfort that your quest for love is right
I’d watch you and I’d wonder, then I’d quietly walk away
‘Cos I know there’s nothing left to do, there’s nothing left to say

I know it’s all for nothing that we’ve cried so many tears
The wreckage of the love we shared lies scattered ‘cross the years
And each imagination holds you close in every thought
You’re the sailor’s fascination, you’re the girl in every port
You’re the girl I’ve left behind in every port
