The Golden Apple

The Captain Slept

Lyrics by Jake Wilson
Melody by Michael Crook

Aye aye it’s all just a dream and it’s X2

I slept and I woke and there in-between
I dreamed away inside a dream
Of speeding land ships under smoked skies
On rivers of stone all whispering by
Ooh they passed me by
No sea air was mine no deck beneath me,
No ports left to steer for no captain to serve

Wake up my captain all hands aloft
There’s none sleeping here there’s none sleeping here
Wake up my captain all hands aloft there’s none sleeping here
There’ll be no sleep while everyone’s here

All that was left was the spray on the deck
And as land drew in sight the captain he just slept
All that was left was the spray on the deck
And as land drew in sight the crew they had fled

I slept and I woke and there in my mind
No voice had I my eyes they were blind
The cold castle walls like ice on my skin
No way of escape they kept me within. Ooh captured within
A crack from the stone has broken a spell
I’ve lived between worlds for too long and it hurts

Wake up my captain all hands aloft
There’s none sleeping here there’s none sleeping here
Wake up my captain all hands aloft there’s none sleeping here

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up sir
(this and the next line are sung together)
Wake up my captain all hands aloft there’s none sleeping here
Wake up my captain all hands aloft
There’s none sleeping here X4
