Crosby, Stills & Nash - Shadow Captain Lyrics

  • Words David Crosby; Lyrics Craig Doerge
  • Oh, captain, what are we hiding from?
  • You've been hiding from the start.
  • Did some lover steal your heart,
  • Or did the full moon make you mad?
  • Oh, captain, why these speechless seas
  • That never seem to land?
  • Oh I need to understand.
  • Could a little light be that bad?
  • I can see your hands are roughened
  • By the wheel and the rope.
  • I'd like to look to you for hope,
  • I think it's hiding there.
  • This boat is blacked out like a city
  • Awaiting bombers in the night.
  • Oh you hold your helm so tight,
  • And yet the sky seems so fair.
  • Who guides this ship
  • Dreaming through the seas
  • Turning and searching,
  • Whichever way you please?
  • Speak to me, I need to see your face,
  • Shadowy captain, in a darkened space.
  • If I were to spy a city
  • Floating just above the sea,
  • Could we stop
  • And look for me
  • Among those playing on the pier?
  • Or would you turn away knowing,
  • It was still a ways away,
  • And if I was there today
  • you could not see me all that clear.
  • Shadowy captain of a charcoal ship,
  • Trying to give the light the slip.
