sights unseen

I would give the treasure isle / valleys deep and green / every inch of every mile / all for the sights unseen / sailor why you waste away / all this day to come / in the streets the sirens play / what are you running from / follow them around the world / swallow down the sea / take your chains down to the bay / and break ‘til the tide is free / what would you give to see the curtain fall / nighttime the same as the day / if you could wander out beyond the wall / sailor what would you pay / I would give the treasure isle / valleys deep and green / every inch of every mile / all for the sights unseen / woman why you sit and weep / there beside the well / is your secret safe to keep / only the walls can tell / is a promise worth the wait  / if it’s only words / cast your cares beside the gate / there for the hungry birds / what would you give / to see an open door / there outside in the shade / if you could travel out beyond the shore / woman what would you trade / I would give the treasure isle / valleys deep and green / every inch of every mile / all for the sights unseen / all for the sights unseen / all for the sights unseen.
