Like sailin' on a sailin' ship to nowhere

Love took over my heart like an ocean breeze

As seagulls fly I knew that I was losin'

Love was washed away with the driftin' tide

(*) Oh, it's a dirty old shame

When all you get from love is a love song

That's got you layin' up nights just waitin' for the music to start

It's such a dirty old shame when you get to take the blame for a love song

Because the best love songs are written with a broken heart

And now the tears in my eyes are ever blinding

The future that lies before me I cannot see

Although tomorrow I know the sun is rising

Lighting up the world for everyone, but not for me

Repeat (*) three times
