“Jackie” by Sinead O’Connor

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

left on a cold, dark night
Telling me he’d be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
Leaving me 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 Jackie-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 me down

“You’re all ”, 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 Jackie oh
Till I find my Jackie oh
Till I find my Jackie oh Jackie oh
Jackie oh
Jackie oh

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
