If, if you choose that we will always lose 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 
And if, if you decide to give him another try 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 

Well they said if I wrote the perfect love song 
You would take me back 
Well I wrote it but I lost it 
And now will you take me back anyway 

Now if, if you insist that this is for the best 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 
And if, if you swear that you no longer care 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 

I'll sail this ship alone 
Between the pain and the pleasure 
I'll sail this ship alone 
Amongst the sharks and the treasure 
If you would rather go your way then go your way 
I'll sail this ship alone 

If, if you're afraid that I won't make the grade 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 
And if, if you agree to him instead of me 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 

Well they said if I wrote the perfect letter 
That I would have a chance 
Well I wrote it, and you burnt it 
And now do I have a chance anyway 

If, if you swear that you no longer care 
Well then I'll sail this ship alone 

I'll sail this ship alone 
Between the pain and the pleasure 
I'll sail this ship alone 
Amongst the sharks and the treasure 
If you would rather go your way then go your way 
I'll sail this ship alone 

Well they said if I burnt myself alive 
That you'd come running back
