The Last Ship (Finale) Lyrics

Broadway Musical (2014)
The Last Ship the Musical - Finale

(Music and lyrics by Sting)

It’s a strange kind of beauty, it’s cold and austere
And whatever it was that you’ve done to be here
It’s the sum of your hopes, your despairs and your fears
When this last ship sails
Now everything’s ship shape, the drag chains we've checked
Send this shop down the slipway and it’s all hands on deck

For nothing’ll stop us, we have to prevail
Through the teeth of this tempest
In the mouth of a gale
May the angels protect us

If all else should fail
When the last ship sails

Oh the roar of the chains (roar)
And the cracking of timbers
The noise at the end of the world in your ears
As a mountain of steel (mountain)
Makes its way to the sea and
The last ship sails

MEG (spoken):
Go Tom, go to your father!

And whatever you’d promised, whatever you’ve done
And whatever the station in life you’ve become
In the name of the Father, in the name of the Son
And no matter the weave of this life that you’ve spun
On the Earth or in Heaven or under the sun
When the last ship sails
When the last ship sails!
