OH MY CAPTAIN - The tale of Ari the Navigator

From The Saga of Sam the Arcadian

Lyrics and music: Mats Källblad and Staffan Melin 2018

 

Oh my Captain this is - my farewell

Oh my Captain - I got a tale to tell

Oh my Captain I loved you and you tried

But the lightyears passed and lovers died and you wont even cry

 

Hello I'm drifting here in space

my oxygen is running low and I long to see your face

Hello I tried to do what's right

I forgive you for the things you did

I think I see the light

 

Oh my Captain don't turn the ship around

Oh my Captain There's starmaids all around

Oh my Captain I loved you and you tried

But the lightyears passed and lovers died and you wont even cry

 

Hello I see you on the screen

your tears are running on your face but you wont rescue me

Hello I draw my final breath

I love you but you sent me off

I'm falling to my death
