The sea waves rose so steeply,
the wind did howl a gale,
sails came crashing onto the deck
of my boat, that was frail.

I looked into the heavens, to
talk with him up there, but
thunderclouds blocked my view,
and I knew he wasn't there.

The wheel was spinning freely
now, no strength was left in me,
to hold the boat on a steady
course in a torrid, tortured sea.

Three days and nights I fought
my way, through this living hell,
but my brain, became so weak
and my legs didn't move too well.

I lashed myself to a stump
of a mast that used to be, I
rolled about with the boat in
the foaming, frothy sea.

It may have been from lack of
sleep as I don't remember much
about the next few hours, but
thank god I was in luck.

The boat grounded on an island
with palm trees all around, and
I knew this time I was saved from
being drowned.

The sea will have it’s wishes and
swallow me up one day, but for the
feeling of spray and salt I just can't
stay away.
