Lyrics:

See my life pass by in a flash of light
I was young then, playin in the sand
All that time gone by in its silent flight
Still I just wanna hold my daddy's hand

But I'm older now-cut my hair back from my shoulder
I help my brother when he's down
For a captain's child, himself not much a pilot
Needs to learn how to steer this ship aground

When those gale winds blew somewhere outside Havana
Your old leather jacket served me well
As the memory fades like the color from my jeans
I'll never have to sail her by myself

But I'm older now-cut my hair back from my shoulder
I help my brother when he's down
For a captain's child, himself not much a pilot
Needs to learn how to steer this ship aground
