I once knew a man who was a sailor in his own mind
He had a ship in an old wine bottle by his bedside
and there were stories, thousands of stories
of navigating the moonlit tides
He was a sailor in his own mind

I once knew a woman who was a Queen in her own mind
She had a throne cast in diamonds and gold
and a castle on the Rhyne
There were servants, thousands of servants, who reasoned her
every rhyme
She was a queen in her own mind

They were married in a small ceremony in the Springtime
Commissioned a world-class vessel in the Summertime
Every Fall they'd sail further and further until Wintertime
in their own minds

The King and Queen, like everyone else, they ran out of time
They were carried down plain white halls where no one cried
but they were happy, supremely happy, until the day they died
In their own minds
