I'm the Big Captain in land

the biggest of them all,

chased and captured my dreams

as the god I am, full

of brightness. Loading my ship,

I invested in the sea,

sang bravely with mermaids,

fought bloodly with pirates

who wanted to steal my dreams.

Until the cold nights

swallowed me like whales

swallowing schools of fish,

in the turmoil of my great

mind and arrested heart

I open widely my fragile lips

but through my teeth

only is how I could sing:

Somebody help me save

Whoa whoa

My ship that's going away

Whoa whoa

I left my tears and dreams to

float across the seven seas

and I yeld to the hurricane

Whoa whoa

Somebody help me save

Whoa whoa

My ship that has drown away.

I close my eyes as

the cold water reachs

although my heart aches

under brave waves

Somebody help me say

Whoa whoa

Somebody help me say

Whoa whoa

Goodbye to this lovely land
