Captain (Lyrics)

During the Lillywhite Recording Sessions, word got out that the song Crazy had been reworked in the studio. However, the song didn't turn up in the 2000 Summer Tour along side all the other Lillywhite songs up for roadtesting. After the demo of the studio sessions was leaked out to the public in the spring of 2001, the song finally surfaced in the following Summer 2001 tour, first as a tease, then as a Dave Solo feature. It was finally released on "Busted Stuff" with slightly reworked lyrics and played live with the full band for the first time on the day of the album release.

Crazy as I may make my way through this world
It’s for no one but me to say what direction I shall turn
I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
Day after day how I long for you my love how I long

Strange but it seems like there’s a mutiny brewing inside me
But I don’t want your pity only the promise that you’ll stay with me tonight
Now I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
Day after day oh how I long for you like crazy

Oh our love - how you do me
Oh my love - come now lets go again
Oh our love - everything
Oh won’t play with me again got all night

Same old song won’t you come stay all my life after all
Oh how could I even try to fight after falling into your arms?
Oh mesmerized by your smile the way it lights up under your eyes
Oh how could I even try love won’t you stay with me?

Oh our love - how you do me
Oh my love - come now lets go again
Oh our love - everything
Oh won’t play with me again we got all night

The same old song
Won’t you come dance with me my love after all?


Alternate Lyrics from the 2000 "Lillywhite Sessions".

Crazy as I may
Make my way through this world
It's for no one but me to say
What direction I should turn in now

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Wanting eyes and kissing lips
The same as it was
And will remain until I'm done
And gone

Strange, but it seems
There's mutiny brewing inside of me now
I don't want your pity
Just the promise that I'll be alright

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was
And will be until I'm gone

Ohh
I know
I'm a dreamer
Still
Think its strange
I won't be long for here
Ohh
But I know
That I feel
Wait and go again
Again

Oh look I'm buried
Like a cancer eating away inside of me
I don't want your pity
Only the promise that I'll be okay

Well, I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was before here
Here
After all

Why should I be hypnotized
By the promise of a long life
Why should I hold hope in tiny, tiny dribbles that glide by
Why should I lean everything upon
I won't be here long

Ohh
I know I'm a dreamer
Still seems a truth
I won't be long for here
Ohh
It's so, but I think I'll lay this
On now your lips
I'm drowned

I am the Captain of
Oh
But I'll be okay after all
