Lyrics

Shanghai me to nowhere, I’m already there.
Like a mariner’s wife, ore’ the ocean I stare.
Won’t you send me a sign, that I still have my mind,
Shanghai me to nowhere, I’m already there.

The blue heron in the sky, that stone look in your eye,
is enough to freeze an ocean, under warm sunny skies.
And the full moon tide, well it just floods my mind.
Shanghai me to nowhere, I’m already there.

Be calm the head sail, and I stand on the bow,
playing this old fiddle, for the water and the clouds.
And on this ship of fools, the captain is solitude.
Shanghai me to nowhere, I’m already there.

When the beggars and the thieves take over this land,
and I ain’t got nobody to hold my hand,
won’t you come to my rescue,
when I send up a flare?
Shanghai me to nowhere, I’m already there.
