The End Of My Pirate Days Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter

The night is soft and silent, new moon at my door
There's nothing near as quiet as the light I'm looking for
Last time that it appeared he way lying next to me
Last time I felt his near to whispered ecstasy
And
those who need adventure
They can sail the seven seas
And those who search for treasure
They must live on grander dream
We rose and fell just like the tides;
he filled my heart and soul
And I buried all my dreams for someone else to find
In my pirate days

This would is kinder to the kind that won't look back
They are the chosen few, among us now, unbowed somehow
And one day he turned to me and before I took one breath
I would only see his shadow in what light was left


And those who need adventure
They can sail the seven seas
And those who search for treasure
They must live on grander dreams
And if I've seen his face since then it's only been in dreams my friend
Since I cam to the end of my pirate days
And if I've called his name since then, it's only been in dreams my friend
And so I came to the end of my pirate days
