EMA – The Grey Ship lyrics
When you see that ship
It is the ship you can see
When the grey ship calls
It is a-callin’ for me
I thought it would come from
I thought it would come from
Further North than that

Blue sky is silver
Blue sky is grey
When the grey ship calls
I am a-leavin’ today
I thought it would come
I thought it would come

[Instrumental]

When you see that ship
It is the ship you can see
All of that callin’
Is a-callin’ for me
I thought it would come
I thought it would come from
I thought it would come from
Further North than that

(I hear a choir, I hear a symphony)

My mother with soft hands
My sister with none left
My best friend from long time
My mouth full of glass

(I hear a choir)

The strangers with wet hair
My old aunt a spinster
I feel all them, calming
I've run out of air

I hear a choir
I hear a symphony

I hear all them calling
The pearly gates
We've come all gone together
We've all gone to sleep

[Guitar break]

I hear a choir
I hear a symphony
Great grandmother
Lived on the prairie
Nothin’ and nothin’
And nothin’ and nothin’
I got the same feelin’
Inside of me
