Great Big Sea Boston And St. John's Lyrics

Last updated: 07/12/2008 11:00:00 AM

Girl, don't tell me that it's morning
Can we keep the curtains drawn
I haven't given you fair warning
But our ship, she sails at dawn

It's true I must be going but I swear I won't be long
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St. John's
I'm a rover and I'm bound to sail away
I'm a rover can you love me anyway?

And if some suitor comes approaching
Will you let him through your door
And what if I return half broken
Will you still want me anymore?


Close your eyes and dream
Tell me what you see
Tell me what you want
Just tell me that you'll wait for me
