Lyrics verse 1:
WE'VE BEEN SWEETHEARTS
FOR SO LONG
BUT NOW YOU SAY
WE'RE THROUGH,
THE LOVE WE SHARED
IS NOW A MEMORY.
I HAD BUILT A SHIP
OF DREAMS
AND PLANNED THEM
ALL FOR YOU,
AND NOW,
I GUESS,
WHAT IS TO BE
WILL BE.

Chorus:
I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE
WITH ALL THE DREAMS
I OWN,
DRIFTING OUT
ACROSS THE OCEAN BLUE.
I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE,
THOUGH ALL THE SAILS
YOU'VE TORN,
AND WHEN IT STARTS
TO SINK
THEN I'LL BLAME YOU.

verse 2:
I'M JUST LIKE
A SHIP AT SEA
THAT'S LOST
WITHOUT A SAIL,
THE DARK CLOUDS
HIDE THE SUN
FROM UP ABOVE.
AND EVEN
WITH THESE BROKEN DREAMS
MY HEART WILL NEVER FAIL,
FOR DEEP INSIDE
THERE'S ONLY
ONE TRUE LOVE.

Chorus:
I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE
WITH ALL THE DREAMS
I OWN,
DRIFTING OUT
ACROSS THE OCEAN BLUE.
I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE,
THOUGH ALL THE SAILS
YOU'VE TORN,
AND WHEN IT STARTS
TO SINK
THEN I'LL BLAME YOU.

verse 3:
GAVE A MESSAGE
TO THE WIND
TO TAKE ME
BACK HOME
TO YOU,
HOPING
YOU WOULD HEAR
MY S.O.S.
MAYBE
YOU WOULD COME
BACK HOME,
MY DARLING,
IF YOU KNEW
HOW MUCH
MY ACHING HEART
IS IN DISTRESS.

Chorus:
I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE
WITH ALL THE DREAMS
I OWN,
DRIFTING OUT
ACROSS THE OCEAN BLUE.
I'LL SAIL MY SHIP ALONE,
THOUGH ALL THE SAILS
YOU'VE TORN,
AND WHEN IT STARTS
TO SINK
THEN I'LL BLAME YOU.

Lyrics I'VE WAITED TOO LONG,
MY DARLING,
FOR YOU
TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND,
SO I FOUND A NEW LOVE
AND NOW I'M LEAVING,
LEAVING YOU WITH A WORRIED MIND.

YOU THOUGHT
THAT YOU COULD PLAY AROUND
EV'RY NIGHT AND DAY
AND EV'RYTHING
WOULD BE JUST FINE.
BUT I'M LEAVING TODAY
WITH ANOTHER
LEAVING YOU WITH A WORRIED MIND.

REMEMBER THE TIMES
WE QUARRELED
YOUR WORDS
TO ME WERE UNKIND.
SO I'M TIRED OF IT ALL
AND NOW I'M LEAVING,
LEAVING YOU WITH A WORRIED MIND.
