"Shipwreck"

We filled our hearts with a cargo of smiles
Set sail for the Happiness Isle
On a course, a course so true
Now the sky don't seem so blue.

Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Shipwrecked on the ocean of love
Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Sadness-bound, heartbreak ahoy.

We said our love would weather the storm
We had each other to keep us from harm
And when we sailed through the Straits of Doubt
You said you'd cast the sirens out.

Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Shipwrecked on the ocean of love
Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Sadness-bound, heartbreak ahoy, heartbreak ahoy.

You said that I'd be a jolly jack tar
Get spliced, go very far
And when we rounded the Cape of Sighs
You cast me away, love-shanghaied.

Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Shipwrecked on the ocean of love
Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Shipwrecked on the ocean of love.

Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Shipwrecked on the ocean of love
Shipwrecked on the ocean of life
Shipwrecked on the ocean of love.
