Pirates

Traveled far
from my home
foreign streets
paved with stone
deep in my dreams
Moroccan sand
now I sail my ship
on dry land

There is a light that
shines on the frontier
Pirates, yeah
Pirates
and on a dark night
when you feel lonely
and the world just
can’t understand you
Pirates, yeah
Pirates

Steal the jewel
watch it break
it cuts with an eye
I can’t escape
the ruby heals
alone I stand
when I sail my ship
on dry land

There is a light that
shines on the frontier
and baby someday
we’re gonna be there
Pirates, yeah
Pirates
and on a dark night
when you feel lonely
and when the world just
can’t understand you
Pirates, yeah
Pirates

There is a light that
shines on the frontier
Pirates, yeah
Pirates
There is a light that
shines on the frontier
