Lyrics

Late one summer afternoon
I left the world behind
Nevermore to care about
The worries on my mind

Listen to me
I'm a simple fisherman
That lives beside the sea

Listen to me
I'm a simple fisherman
That lives beside the sea

Things were getting out of hand
And I was stressing out
That is why I came out here
Where no one needs to shout

Listen to me
I'm a simple fisherman
That lives beside the sea

Listen to me
I'm a simple fisherman
That lives beside the sea

If you want
I will show
More than words can say

If you want
I will love
More and more each day

Listen to me
I'm a simple fisherman
That lives beside the sea

Listen to me
I'm a simple fisherman
That lives beside the sea
