paper sails lyrics – stu larsen

we’ve been sailing in the ocean
with a comp*ss and it’s broken
and it seems we haven’t spoken in a while
our paper sails are rippend and torn
and our will to row is gone
so we’ll drift until we see the light of day

well we woke up hand in hand
with the promise of dry land
it was close enough to fill us with relief
but we’ve got nowhere to go
and no way to call back home
so it seems we’re all alone in this place

oh it’s gonna be a long long night
oh it’s gonna be a long long night
oh oh oh i will fight for you

stuck on this island
every day i see you crying
baby please know that i’m trying to be brave
i’ll build a raft for you
i’ll sail into the afternoon
i’ll do anything to get you free

oh it’s gonna be a long long night
oh it’s gonna be a long long night
oh oh oh i will fight for you
