lyrics

Once, I was a mainsail
Filled up with a strong gale
Arms and legs all akimbo
And you were the only thing that I would tie myself to.

She came out of her halfshell
A Botticellian nightmare
Her toes, an archipelago
Spread out across the sea separating you from me.

Oh oh oh
Our bodies grow
Oh oh oh
Our spirits slow
Oh oh oh
All parents know it’s true

The waves, well, they make her wakefull
The wind, well, it makes her rageful
She crooooowwwws that I am not able
And she is the only thing of which I’m ever afraid

Oh oh oh
Our bodies grow
Oh oh oh
Our spirits slow
Oh oh oh
All parents know it’s true

Yes, they Do!

Think I need some time to atone
Sail the open sea without home
The mist and the foam
A life overthrown
She says that we all die alone and she don’t see what the fuss is

ONCE, I WAS A MAINSAIL
ONCE, I WAS A MAINSAIL
ONCE, I WAS A MAINSAIL
