sailor song lyrics – counting crows

walk out amanda, our fortunes are clear
these are the last of our days
left san francisco with time on my hands
and i got back with you on my brain
so bring me a second or bring me an hour
bring me the world in a tear
bring me a little of anything amanda
and i’ll keep it close to me here
press it among the best years of my heart and my tears
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want
throw me up on the sh*r* tonight and i’ll count the last light
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want…
come on amanda, you know what i mean
you won’t be happy ’round here
got on the wagon the tenth of december
i fell off the first of the year
and i know you wish i was better then that
i know you wish i was dry
god knows i wish i was somebody else
right now i wish i could die
press it among the best years of my heart and my tears
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want
maybe among the earphones of my heart and my soul
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want everything
and i want to be a raider, i want anything
and i want to be a man
what’s the matter?
didn’t you think we were trying?
hey, what’s the matter?
didn’t you think i was somebody else who
could lie in the wake of you smile?
spent twenty-six stiffening years down the drain
women who will spit in your eye
and a drunkard like me gets the worst of your love
good riddance, good luck and good bye
press it among the best years of my heart and my tears
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want
maybe among the hill folds of my heart and my soul
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want
singing ’till the sky turns and lungs burst and throat burns
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want
screaming ’till the sun houses my here and my now
and i want, and i want, and i want, and i want everything
and i want to be a sailor, i want anything
and i wanna be a man
i want everything
and i wanna be a sailor, i want anything
and i wanna be a man
and i wanna be a man
and i wanna be a man
