2/18/1997 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
'cause I am the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids, and kissing lips
it's the same as it was
and should be, oh

Then you give
and rain, the hand that feeds you all
you give
and though the lie
you give
and pray oh come alone
you give
the same is told to every soul and even I

People say how crazy the way
she dances and she do
and more crazy than that is true
is what she says and how she sings it

She sings,
"I am the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids, and kissing lips."
the same as it was and the way
the way and oh let it through
like it should have been

"So why should I," she thinks, "deny my dreams
'cause another one is dreaming for me?
Why should I listen to hundred year old theories
about what's right what's wrong deny
and I tell you boy, rich you born"

(tough to pick up parts of this, but it's pretty solid)
You give
and oh the hands across my face
you give in pain and say why
you give say do not don't go into denial
you give you think I -
I won't lay I won't lay more in
and though I say late I do more than I
and I will open the door open and let in
you give
you say your time, your time is what you dream
you give

you say baby
I will be yours and you'll be mine

the same as it was
and the way
leave me and I will go
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?
