GOLD IN THE SEA

2022 Elbee/O'Brien; All Rights Reserved

Music by Joe Elbee; Lyrics by Alex O'Brien

Why are you so haggard-looking?

Said the boy to me

Your face is worn, your hair like straw

How old may you be?

All my life I've been sailing

'Cross the ocean waves

I've been stranded, I've been beaten

I have touched my grave

But...

There's gold in the sea

Yes there's gold in the sea

All my life I've been searching

For treasures in the sea

Why do you believe in fables?

Asked the troubled lad

Your eyes are dark, your chest is scarred

You must be half mad

All my life I've kept believing

In my father's dream

I've been hunted, I've been hounded

Wild adventures I have seen

Cos...

There's gold in the sea

Yes there's gold in the sea

All my life I've been searching

For treasures in the sea

I've seen pirates and coral in clear water

Sunken old steamers with skulls at the bottom

Travelled underground rivers and island mountains

I've rocked the unknown and bathed in its bounty

And I know...

Where may I sign on for duty?

Said the brave young man

I want to live, I want to feel

I need to understand

All my life I've never faltered

My day is almost done

Help me sail across the water

Be my long lost son

Yes, all my life I've never faltered

My day is almost done

Help me sail across the water

Deep into the setting sun

Deep into the setting sun
