As the sun beats upon these green fields
My heart calls for open sea
This home and hearth is taming, frustrating and restraining
And shackling chains around my poor wandering feet

All the people, tastes and places I should know
If up and away to sea I should go
Out across the border, where there's no order
And not a single acre would I be driven to reap nor sow

With only charts and maps and graphs to know the way
I'd be lost and found, or drowned in some lonely bay
To follow only the baser instincts, to live on bread and gin drinks
An individual, indivisible from the sea

But I know if I put out to sea
My heart would call for these green fields
Those endless blazing waters would weigh upon my shoulders
And drive me 'cross the miles, hurried home
Those endless blazing waters would weigh upon my shoulders,
Those endless blazing waters would weigh upon my shoulders,
Drive me 'cross the miles, hurried home
To you
