lyrics

Before I was born the angel said to me
I’m sendin' you to earth to be as bad as can be

So I grew into a man like a tree around a nail
My twisted heart of wood spilling blood across my trail

Before this life would end, the angel came again
To thank me for my wicked deeds and doin' like she said

She opened up her wings, let forth the ancient wind
To fill the sail of my ship and take me from this land
-
Now I sail through silver mist
No wrong nor right aboard my ship

Between lives, this old sea is my home

Again someday I'll wash ashore
Another man I'll play once more

Between lives, this old sea is my home

After livin' and dyin', to this old sea I return
-
Before I was born the angel said to me
I'm sendin you to earth to be as good as you can be

So I grew into a man like an old mountain spring
An endless stream of kindness for everyone to drink

Before this life would end, the angel came again
To thank me for my noble deeds and doin' like she said

She opened up her mouth, let forth the ancient tide
To lift my boat up from the sand and take me from this life
-

Now I sail through silver mist
No wrong nor right aboard my ship

Between lives, this old sea is my home

Again someday I'll wash ashore
Another man I'll play once more

Between lives, this old sea is my home

After livin' and dyin' to this old sea I return

To this old sea I return...
