LYRICS
Two vagabond sailors
Strayed for twenty-four years
Oh we were starved when our ships ran aground
Sated when we did draw near
Full we were living here.

The crews were elated
Though the games got out of hand
We pulled an island out of rough seas
Not just a castle of sand
No, not just a castle of sand

And when it did rain, we lay close and laughed
And when it got worse, we hid what we had

In Spring there was tension
The crews would stare out to sea
You went on foot to scale the tallest peak

I readied my vessel to leave, oh
I charted a route to the east

In summer, you came back, savage and bronzed
We feasted all night, we feted the dawn

Conquistadores say we're the lucky ones
The puritans, say we're the lucky ones
The historians say we're the lucky ones
Come on
Come on
Come on

Madly and sadly, again came the spring (came the spring)
The crews were both restless, you know what I mean (know what I mean)
We pulled up the anchors and took to the wing
I said, fond goodbye
We said, "fond goodbye"
This was yours and mine
We sailed on with the tide

about

Little Cinema New York

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
