Swervedriver – Good Ships lyrics

I was born on a good ship
Loose lips sink flagships
Left alone and the sea is calm
High tide and no storms

They tell me that the river's too deep
And it's much too wide
You can't get across to the other side
I got a lover way over there by the mountainside
(Hold her my arms just a-one more time)
And I can hear her calling to me
(Just like I did before)
I can hear her calling to me
(The sea's been sailing a good ship)
She's calling my name

Sailing home on a good ship
(I've been sailing a good ship)
The sea is too cold and it's much too wide
(Much too wide)

(Sailing home on a good ship)
High tide and no storms

I was born on a good ship
Much too wide
Loose lips sink flask hips
But it's much too wide
