lyrics

There was so much I wanted to tell you
wanted to tell you before I left
One more trip out through the Atlantic
and I'll be home with enough money to buy you that wedding dress.
I'm still wearing my bloodied, lucky baseball cap
from that ballgame we went to in Boston, Mass
and that pictures you sent
though they were only meant for me
I couldn't help letting the other guys sneak a peak
and I know...

You'll be watching from a lighthouse safe from rain
I'll be riding a full force gale into Maine
now these sails are bending I can't tell dusk from dawn
I'm not sure if I'll ever make it home

There was so much I wanted to do besides
fishing and fighting but, fishing and fighting were all that I knew
I feel the rain on my fingers
Not much left here to do except count the rolling waves
and I know...

You'll be watching from a lighthouse safe from rain
I'll be riding a full force gale into Maine
now these sails are bending I can't tell dusk from dawn
I'm not sure if I'll ever make it home
