Lyrics for the Day – Captain, My Captain

It’s really called Closer to Home but it’s the theme song to a college alum friend.

Everybody
Listen to me
And return me
My ship
I’m your captain
I’m your captain
Though I’m feeling
Mighty sick
 
I’ve been lost now
Days uncounted
And it’s months since
I’ve seen home
Can you hear me
Can you hear me
Or am I
All alone
 
If you return me
To my home port
I will kiss you
Mother Earth
Take me back now
Take me back now
To the port
Of my birth
 
Am I in my cabin dreaming
Or are you really scheming
To take my ship away from me
You’d better think about it
I just can’t live without it
So please don’t take my ship from me
 
I can feel the hand
Of a stranger
And it’s tightening
Around my throat
Heaven help me
Heaven help me
Take this stranger
From my boat
 
I’m your captain
I’m your captain
Though I’m feeling
Mighty sick
Everybody
Listen to me
And return me
My ship
 
I’m your captain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m your captain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m your captain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m your captain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
 
I’m getting closer to my home
I’m getting closer to my home
I’m getting closer to my home
I’m getting closer to my home
