1/25/1997 alternate lyrics

Crazy as I may, make my way through this world
it's for no one but me to say
what direction I should turn in
'cause I am the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids, and kissing lips
the same as it was and is
for every one else to see around here

Hold me back again
it's my play
the game's been done again
the same and over all these times
and me, I play a lie to

Oh, why should I open my mind
so I can comply with your mind?
I don't think why and I won't do it
why shouldn't I get high if I might
keep my mind my own thing?
you can't come inside unless you're invited

You give, the bone
you give, and you sing, love, why?
you give, and you play
time all night long
you give
and say take me over please
it's not for me

So I step left, left, right
if that's what helps me fly my kite
and I'll walk backwards if I might tonight
just to make me feel like I can do it

no it's not for you
'cause I am the captain of this ship

You give, you won't
you won't go back again
you give, and play no I
you give, and still won't and I wonder
you give, more than say you do
but what

Please, let me be
I'll let you too, after all
Captain
main lyrics
Crazy as I may
make my way through this world, oh
it's for no one but me to say
what direction I should turn in now

Well, I am the captain of this ship
curious hands and fingertips
day after day
how I long for you, my love, how I long

Strange, but it seems
like there's a mutiny brewing inside of me now
but I don't want your pity
only the promise that you'll stay with me tonight

I am the captain of this ship
curious hands and fingertips
but day after day how I long for you like crazy

I know, my love, how you do me
how low, my love, come on, let's go again
oh, no, I love everything, oh, won't you
play me again, we got all night

The same old song, won't you come stay
oh, my love, after all

But how could I even try to fight
after falling into your arms
oh, mesmerized by your smile
the way it lights up under your eyes
how could I even try?
love, won't you stay with me?

Well, love, how you do me
oh, my love, come on, let's go again
my love, my love, everything
oh, won't you play with me again?
we got all night

The same old song, won't you come dance
my love, after all?
