If I was to walk from where I am
To where you are right now
I'd have to cross eight borders and three seas.
But that might show you what you mean to me.
And if I was to make this journey long
I'd have to learn to swim
Much better than my doggy-paddle way.
But then you might believe me when I say
The time will come when you and I
Are not so far away
And I won't be singing this song on that day.
I will set out for your island home
When my front crawl's up to scratch
And when I've written my arrival song.
I'm working on it now, it's almost done.
Frank Turner Front Crawl Lyrics
