about

Among my favorite songs, this song is about an 1700's pirate captain about to be hung for his crimes, finding solace that his secrets are taken to his grave. Written around 2014.

lyrics

(Verse 1)
Twilight comes again
For the sun needs rest
For now I'll sing my tune
If for no one but the moon

So I've tempted fate
In my last disgrace
For now I'll sing my tune
For dawn is coming soon

(Chorus 1)
In my thoughts
In my mind
I know it will go for all time

In my soul
Frigid I know
I know I must leave you behind

(Verse 2)
Come with me across the sea
Did you think you'd understand?
Its a dream, not what it seems
Can you even comprehend?

No goodbyes, its a lie
Is it really in my head?
Fortune's fall shadowed all
As she fell beneath the sea

In my bars, I will starve
Is this how I'll pay my fee?
The hangman's tie awaits my life
Through death, the will set me free

Come with me across the sea
Will they ever set me free?
No goodbyes, its a lie
Will they ever set me free?

(Chorus 2)
In my thoughts
In my mind
I know it will go for all time

In my soul
Frigid I know
I know I must leave you behind

Tomorrow falls
The hangman calls
My mind turns to dreams of the sea

My final stand
Their last demand
My end, my last victory

(Bridge)

(Verse 3)
Morning comes again
For the moon needs rest
For now I'll sing my tune
I know my end is coming soon

So I've tempted fate
In my last disgrace
For now I'll sing my tune
As I'm dragged out to the noose

(Final Chorus)
