Don't Talk to the Captain Lyrics

VanWyck
Don't talk to the captain
He wears his heart upon his sleeve
Once he starts talking
We will never leave
We've been stuck here on these cold rocks
For way too long
Waiting for the old man
To steer us home

Don't talk to the captain
He's got a troubled mind
He'll tell you of his great love
How she set his soul on fire
How he met her in the harbour
In the early morning hours
How she curled up the ladder
Made him forget that he ever
Had to get us out

Sure we like being on board
But we all just want to get home soon
Oh we like being on board
But we all just wanna get home

Don't talk to the captain
I wish you well
Up here on these cold rocks
Nothing good ever fell
So join us in the lobby
And have a drink or two
But don't invite the captain
It'd be a foolish thing to do

Sure we like being on board
But we all just want to get home soon
Oh we like being on board
But we all just wanna get home
