Traveled far from my home
Foreign streets paved with stone
Deep in my dreams, Moroccan sand
Now I sail my ship
On dry land

There is a light that
Shines on the frontier
Pirates yeah
Pirates
And on a dark night
When you feel lonely
And the world just
Can't understand you
Pirates yeah
Pirates
Yeah

Steal the jewel, watch it break
It cuts with an eye, I can't escape
The ruby heals, alone I stand
When I sail my ship
On dry land

There is a light that
Shines on the frontier
Pirates yeah
Pirates
And on a dark night
When you feel lonely
And the world just
Can't understand you
Pirates yeah
Pirates
There is a light that
Shines on the frontier
Pirates yeah
Pirates
Yeah

There is a light that
Shines on the frontier
And baby someday
We're gonna be there
Pirates yeah
Pirates
And on a dark night
When you feel lonely
And when the world just
Can't understand you
Pirates yeah
Pirates
There is a light that
Shines on the frontier
Pirates yeah
Pirates
There is a light that
Shines on the frontier
