Helloween – Closer To Home lyrics

(m&l - farner)

Everybody listen to me
And return me
My ship
I'm your captain
I'm your captain
No I'm feeling mighty sick

I've been lost now
Days uncounted
And it's months since
I've seen home
Can you hear me
Can you hear me
Oh am I all alone

If you return me
To my home port
I will kiss you
Mother earth
Take me back now
Take me back now
To the port
Of my birth
To the port
Of my birth

Am I in my cabin dreaming
Or are you really schemeing
To take my ship away from me?
You better think about it
I just can't live without it
So please don't take my ship from me
Yeah yeah yeah

I can feel the hand
Of the stranger
As it's tightening
Around my throat
Heaven help me
Heaven help me
Take this stranger
From my boat
I'm your captain
I'm your captain
Though I'm feeling mighty sick
Everybody listen to me
And return me my ship
I'm your captain
Yeah yeah yeah, m getting closer to my home
