16 Fathoms

This song is by Sting and Shaggy and appears on the album 44/876 (2018).

16 fathoms down
Where my ship is bound
Another drop in the ocean
16 fathoms down

She said, "Sailor man, believe me, I stand on solid ground
You say your plan is to leave me and sail out from this town
You know prophecy runs in my family, I know where your ship is bound
One day, you're going to find yourself 16 fathoms down"

16 fathoms down
Where my soul is bound
Another drop in the ocean
16 fathoms down

I didn't pay no mind to her, I just turned around
My ship lies out in the harbor, I sail out from this town
My thoughts become uneasy, her words keep turning 'round
I pray that I won't find myself 16 fathoms down

16 fathoms down
Is where my soul is bound
Another drop in the ocean
16 fathoms down

Girl, it no matter wha' you do and it no matter wha' you say
You try break me but it nah work today
It no matter wha' you do and it no matter wha' you say
Me wear di crown and you cyaan' take it way

You think I was a loser, me tell you, "Say, you wrong"
Enough woman a road waan' me fi be dem man
'Ca' positivity surround me
No waan' nuttin' negative around me

A storm will rage inside me as I sail out on the sound
I pray to God this darkness pass, I pray that I won't drown
Now, the sails are blown to bloody rags, the mizzenmast come down
The prophecy has doomed me, 16 fathoms down

Of course, God come to find me in the place where the ship went down
The prophecy will bind me, and that's where I'll be drowned

16 fathoms down
Is where my ship is bound
Another drop in the ocean
16 fathoms down

Girl, it no matter wha' you do and it no matter wha' you say
You try break me but it nah work today
It no matter wha' you do and it no matter wha' you say
Me wear di crown and you cyaan' take it way

You think I was a loser, me tell you, "Say, you wrong"
Enough woman a road waan' me fi be dem man
'Ca' positivity surround me
16 fathoms down
