I'm a million miles from anywhere, where can I be
Somewhere out on the ocean
Just take a look out on the horizon, what can you see
There's nothing there for me

I feel shipwrecked, I might as well be shipwrecked
I'm helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can't believe what you said to me

Even standing on the corner of a busy city street
I still feel so lonely
Why do you say you want to be with me 
But the next day say you don't

I'm shipwrecked, I might as well be shipwrecked
I'm helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can't believe what you said to me
Without you I feel shipwrecked
But I can't let it show
A million miles away from anywhere, ooh, ooh, ohh

Is it my imagination
Or is it getting darker, are the waves getting higher
I'm a million miles from anywhere
A million miles from anything I know

You know that's why I'm shipwrecked
I might as well be shipwrecked
I'm helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can't believe what you said to me
You know that's why I'm shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Losing my direction
Please come and rescue me (shipwrecked)
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
