lyrics

The ship left the seaport of Lisbon
Alone, you, the ropes and the sea
And the white tissue soaked in bourbon
Left the path that led you to me

And the war has built an armour around my tearful heart
Don't worry, my princess, don't cry
My body is yours again like it was right at the start
Together we can take the wheel and take this ship to the sky

Johanna, don't suffer anymore
Clear your tears to my bourbon tissue
Put your hands on my chest and see how light it is
It was hell, Johanna, to miss you.

And the war has built an armour around my tearful heart
Don't worry, my princess, don't cry
My body is yours again like it was right at the start
Together we can take the wheel and take this ship to the sky

And the war has built an armour around my tearful heart
Don't worry, my princess, don't cry
My body is yours again like it was right at the start
Together we can take the wheel and take this ship to the sky
