Wilburn Brothers – I'll Sail My Ship Alone lyrics

We've been sweethearts for so long but now you say we're through
The love we shared is now a memory
I had built a ship of dreams and planned them all for two
But now I guess what is to be will be
I'll sail my ship alone with all the dreams I own driftin' out across the ocean blue
I'll sail my ship alone but all the sails you torn
And when it starts to sink then I blame you
[ piano ]
I gave a message to the wind to take back on to you hoping you would hear my sos
Maybe you would come back home but darling if you knew
How my aching heart is in distress
[ steel - fiddle ]
I'm just like a ship at sea that's lost without a sail
The dark clouds hide the sun from up above
And even with these broken dreams my heart will never fail
But deep inside there's only one true love
I'll sail my ship alone...
