Continents all made of clay, dreamers leaving every day

North by North

North by north— lest we have to settle down

we can sail without the wind in this town

Things that London never saw

Northern winters start to thaw;

To islands on the sea,

lands I’ve never seen,

things will get calmer—follow me.

You said a long long time ago

you were happy being someone

Let’s go far far far from home

I’ll be glad to be with someone

Land pneumonia, your engines in repair;

plant begonias, and orchids in your hair.

Continents all made of clay

Dreamers leaving every day

To islands on the sea,

lands I’ve never seen,

things will get calmer—follow me.

Someone told me you had oceans in your eyes

Cold as shadows over European skies

Coasting out the shallow day

Leaving London in decay

To islands on the sea,

lands I’ve never seen,

things will get calmer—follow me.
