Golden Earring - Sail on Sailor

I sailed an ocean, unsettled ocean
Through restful waters and deep commotion
Often frightened, unenlightened
Sail on, sail on sailor
I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
Sail through the sorrow of life's marauders
Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor
Caught like a sewer rat
Alone but I sail
Bought like a crust of bread
Oh, did I wail
Seldom stumble, never crumble
Try to tumble, life's a tumble
Feel the stinging, I've been giving
Never ending, unrelenting
Heartbreak searing, always fearing
Never clearing, persevering
Sail on, sail on sailor
I work the seaways
The gale swept seaways
Past shipwrecked daughters
Of wicked waters
Uninspired, drenched and tired
Sail on, sail on sailor
Always needing, even bleeding
Never feeding, all my feelings
Damn the thunder, must I blunder
There's no wonder, all I'm under
Stop the crying and the lying
And the sighing and my dying
Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
Sail on, sail on sailor
