sistine lyrics – anthony phillips

there’s a light on the sea
and it’s shining for me
‘cos i’m going away on the ocean
sailor boy, they just said,
grabbed me out of my bed,
now my head’s getting giddy with motion.

don’t you worry, sweetheart,
i won’t be gone long
i’ll be coming home soon –
i promise.
i will carry your love
deep inside of me –
when the night time comes
i’ll be yours.

there’s a light on the road
as the train pulls it’s load,
infant soldiers so keen to get at them.
mama, send me some socks,
‘cos the rats got the lot
but we’re still singing in two feet of water

don’t you worry, sweetheart,
i won’t be gone long
i’ll be coming home soon –
i promise.
i will carry your love
deep inside of me –
when the night time comes
i’ll be yours.

there’s a light in the sky,
so, at last, it’s goodbye
as we gather our masks at the station.
pull the throttle out, jim,
what a beautiful whim,
now it could be a lengthy vacation.

don’t you worry, sweetheart,
i won’t be gone long
i’ll be coming home soon –
i promise.
i will carry your love
deep inside of me –
when the night time comes
i’ll be yours.
