Lyrics:

Oh I dream to be a wayfarer!
Oh I dream to be a wayfarer!

A thousand matches light my path as I trudge back home
The fog is heavy and storm clouds are all that I've known
Father told me life was difficult before he died
But I refuse to believe that I think it's all part of my pride

They said come away with me and I'll show you the world
From the monsters of the deep to the prettiest of girls
And I thought that I'd be lonely at sea
But I've learned to love the company that I keep

My feet are raw as I step upon the shore
The tide comes in and I feel the pain no more
I ran away to be a pirate for a year
When I return I pledge all my loot to you my dear

They said come away with me and I'll show you the world
From the monsters of the deep to the prettiest of girls
And I thought that I'd be lonely at sea
But I've learned to love the company that I keep


The seas tempest chased me back to the shore
And here I am again knocking at your door
A sea fairing life was not for me
But that doesn't mean that I don't dream to be free

Oh oh I dream to be a wayfarer
Oh oh I dream to be a wayfarer
Oh oh I dream to be a wayfarer

Oh oh I dream to be a wayfarer
Oh oh I dream to be a wayfarer
Oh oh I dream to be a wayfarer

They said come away with me and I'll show you the world
From the monsters of the deep to the prettiest of girls
And I thought that I'd be lonely at sea
But I've learned to love the company that I keep

Oh I've learned to love the company that I keep
