lyrics

Today I sail a freighter ship
just my thoughts and me
it’s peaceful to be drifting here
but I get so lonely

I spy a girl out on the pier
she’s looking kind of lost
I stare her strongly in the eyes
and give it my best shot

she tells me
she’s a wanderer
adrift without a home

well if you wanna stay with me
we’ll never be alone I say

come on, hurry run away with me
we can sail to a place where
no one has been
just us, out on the sea
oh baby won’t you
run away with me.

No she coyly nods to me
a teased look in her eye
you really can’t be serious
now can we say goodbye I said

come on, hurry run away with me
we can sail to a place where
no one has been
just us, out on the sea
oh baby won’t you
run away with me.

And if you decline this invitation
I’ll take my time and find a better replacement
But if you follow, I promise it will be
A trip you won’t forget, now baby run with me

I take her hand and hold her close
We voyage out to the sea
The water’s large in breadth and scope
My girl is finally free I said

come on, hurry run away with me
we can sail to a place where
no one has been
just us, out on the sea
oh baby won’t you
run away with me.

Our loneliness has ceased.
