Billy Joel Great Ships, Great Oceans Lyrics

Last updated: 12/09/2012 12:57:27 PM

When I was just a little boy
I always wanted to go away to see
And now I'm that much older, but I ain't much wiser
I should have gone 'cause it keeps on calling me

I used to stand upon the shore
Dream about the life I live someday
And me and my grandfather will be upon the water
And canvas sails would fill and throw us far away

Great ships and great oceans
Great captains and the waves
Great ships and great emotions
Used to carry me away

I ain't goin' home no more
'Cause I've seen beyond my childhood sky
And all my late confusion is just an old illusion
My dreams should remain all the chance has passed me by

There is no right, there is no wrong
And we are only what we choose to be
And if I choose to follow the things that I believe in
Then the things that I believe will surely follow me

Great ships and great oceans
Great captains and the waves
Great ships and great emotions
Used to carry me away

Great ships and great oceans
Great captains and the waves
Great ships and great emotions
Used to carry me away
