Chapter 1

He looked out to the sea one day
And dreamed of becoming a sailor
But instead he just stowed away
Yet still he got on the water

It wasn't till later that he had been caught
And forced to mop up the galley
The ship had been traveling at twenty-three knots
When it beached on a rock in a valley

chorus

He was one with the ocean
Circling the world
Telling his stories
To anyone who would listen

Day by day he gets
Caught in the whirlwind
Of a journey
Of the seafaring traveller


The ship started sinking there was only one raft
He fought to the front just to make it alive
There was almost no food in the craft
So when the ship sunk there were few to survive

Day and night there was nothing but blue
It was more than enough to drive a man crazy
When he jumped in the water they called him a fool
But for those in the boat, their vision got hazy

refrain

He swam they floated, they eventually died
He was becoming frozen and numb
Out in the distance he could see something wide
He could barely signal, he was nearing his doom

Then came from nowhere he was lift up on deck
He registered that he had just been rescued
They said they found others from the wreck
But they were far to many too few

refrain

They had all been brought back to shore
They were just happy to see the ground
Most said they wouldn't go anymore
But one was seen to be turning around

He looked out to the sea one day
And dreamed of becoming a sailor
But instead of just stowing away
He trained and soon became first mate

refrain
