Dream to live - Great Big Sea

 

Dream to live by Great Big Sea


Set off for America far across the ragin' sea
From the frozen coves of my island home
To the land of liberty
I have to leave my girl behind
Until I make my way
Oh Molly dear please wait for me
I'll come back for you some day
We landed hard in Boston
And I'd never seen the like
A small boat boy from around the bay
In this sea of shining lights
Two days in I got a job
Building towers of high steel
I had to learn, to not look down
And I quickly learned to kneel
All I need is one good nights sleep
In your loving arms, to mend
We sleep to dream
And we dream to live
Will I live to love you again
I saved every cent I could
But the months turned into years
Then a letter came from Molly
And confirmed my deepest fears
She would no longer wait for me,
She'd found a better man
I might have been in America,
But my heart was broken
In Newfoundland
My working days are over now
And my children have all grown
I did the best with what I had
But some days I feel alone
I often wonder where you are
Do you still know my name
Deep inside this old man's heart
There's a love that still remains
