Lyrics
Refrain:
It´s been a long time she wants him to know,
The way she fells every time he´s gotta go
It´s been a long time she wants him to say
"I´d rather be the one who leaves than be the one who stays!"

hear the song
hear the song
Of the sailor´s wife
Hiding her tears inside
To let him live his life
Hear the song
Hear the song
Of the woman alone
She is got married but most often on her own!

Too many times that i´ve felt so depressed
She knows that he knows
But he doesn´t give her what she wants
How many times have i tried to express
i know that you know and you know that i won´t
i know that you know and you know that i won´t
Do you see what I mean?

Refrain

One day you´ll be back and i won´t be there no more
She knows that he knows
But he doesn´t give her what she wants
Already on the road while you´ll be knockin´ on my door
I know that you know and you know that i won´t
I know that you know and you know that i won´t

Refrain

Sorry darling but you´re just reaping what you sowed !
Sorry darling but you´re just reaping what you sowed !

Refrain
