lyrics

Can’t believe I’m still going out on that ocean
I’m always casting a wide net
I’ve been trawling for most of my life now
And sometimes you pull in one you just can’t forget
Sometimes it feels like I didn’t choose this life
Feels like this life chose me instead
I’m just doing what my grandfather and my dad did
Hell, I guess it ain’t that bad
Well it’s cold and lonely as sin
Out there swaying in the cold and in the wind
But I know when my ship is coming in
That you’ll be waiting there for me (and I’ll say…)

Baby you can settle in
Just kick off your shoes and relax
You don’t have to try to be anybody
‘Cuz that kinda love, it just never lasts
Baby you can settle in
‘Cuz you and me, we ain’t settlin’
It took us many years to find one another
And I’ve been searching since way back when
Baby just settle in

I never thought I’d have a partner
Never thought I’d have someone to share all this beauty with
I couldn’t even imagine what that might look like
But baby this is it
But when those fish are runnin’
I gotta pack up my bags and get on after it
The sea don’t wait for no one
It’s always callin’ me back
Every time we say goodbye
And I look into your eyes
Well, I know when my ship is coming in
That you’ll be waiting there for me

about

Aaron Semer Seattle, Washington

"Semer draws from the tradition of the best singer/songwriters in that he can write about any variety of topics and make it all seem too easy. With Cape Disappointment, he deserves a seat at the table alongside Jeff Tweedy, Steve Earle, Warren Zevon, and John Prine. He's that good." - PopMatters ... more
