“Jackie” by Sinead O’Connor

“And I’ve been waiting all this time for my man to come take his hand in mine and lead away to unseen shores.”

left on a cold, dark night
Telling he’d be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
Leaving all alone

And I’ve been dead for twenty years
I’ve been washing the sand
With my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my -oh

I remember the day the young man came
He said, “your Jackie’s gone
We got lost in the rain”
And I ran to the beach
And laid me down

“You’re all wrong”, I said
And they stared at the sand
“That man knows that sea
Like the back of his hand
He’ll be back some time
laughing at you”

And I’ve been waiting all this time
For my man to come
Take his hand in mine
And lead me away
To unseen shores

I’ve been washing the sand
With my salty tears
Searching the shore
For these long years
And I’ll walk the seas forever more

Till I find my oh
Till I find my oh
Till I find my oh Jackie oh
oh
oh

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
