2/6/1997 alternate lyrics

Crazy, as I may
make my way through this world
it's for no one but me to share
what direction I turn in
'cause I am the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids and kissing lips
the same as it was and should be
when you will

you give
oh we won't be back again
you give
and oh you [?]
you give
oh in the homes back again
you give
the same respect for them
that turn and change

ah, don't you see the strange way the girl dances away her day
ah, even ridiculed display won't stop her feet from moving
because I am the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids and kissing lips
just the same as it was [?]

maybe it's strange
I live a lie
I'm coming back again

oh turn back babe
the lights from yourself
and turn the spotlight down
oh turn it on yourself
because you are the captain of this ship
eyes, eyelids and kissing lips
just the same as for all
I reign and waiting to be

why should I be hypnotized by someone else's lie?
why should I, oh, take time and pride in
what someone else believes?
oh, tell me go on,
won't you roll on then maybe you

you give
oh on the backside
on the wind
you give
and oh me [?]
you give
more than I've ever seen before
you give

[?] be all I can
the same as it was [?]
me believe my head my heart
Captain
main lyrics
[Busted Stuff version]

Crazy as I may make my way through this world
It's for no one but me to say what direction I shall turn
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 me
But I don't want your pity only the promise that you'll stay with me tonight
Now I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
Day after day oh how I long for you like crazy
Oh our love - how you do me
Oh my love - come now lets go again
Oh our love - everything
Oh won't play with me again got all night
Same old song won't you come stay all my life after all
Oh 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
Oh how could I even try love won't you stay with me?
The same old song
Won't you come dance with me my love after all?

[2000 Studio Session version]

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 now

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Wanting eyes and kissing lips
The same as it was
And will remain until I'm done
And gone

Strange, but it seems
There's mutiny brewing inside of me now
I don't want your pity
Just the promise that I'll be alright

'Cause I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was
And will be until I'm gone

Oh
I know
I'm a dreamer
Still
Think its strange
I won't be long for here
Oh
But I know
That I feel
Wait and go again
Again

Oh look I'm buried
Like a cancer eating away inside of me
I don't want your pity
Only the promise that I'll be okay

Well, I am the captain of this ship
Curious hands and fingertips
The same as it was before here
Here
After all

Why should I be hypnotized
By the promise of a long life
Why should I hold hope in tiny, tiny dribbles that glide by
Why should I lean everything upon
I won't be here long

Oh
I know I'm a dreamer
Still seems a truth
I won't be long for here
Oh
It's so, but I think I'll lay this
On now your lips
I'm drowned

I am the Captain of
Oh
But I'll be okay after all
