Great Big Sea lyrics : "Seagulls"

She left St.John's one day in May
Dressed in her Sunday best
A kind man sat beside her

While she cried her way out West

She moved in with her cousin

Found a job down in the mall
Her friends at home were jealous
Said they'd see her in the fall

You know that she wants to try,

never lets you see her cry
You know that she wants to try,
she's got seagulls in her eyes

The people here seem really nice
But the winter's way too long

New friends, they don't understand
They just tell her to be strong

She made some decent money
But nothing comes for free
The busy streets just can't compete

With the sky, the rocks and sea


Her parents came at Eastertime
They wanted her to stay

But she went and got a panel van
Moved home on her birthday

The girls in town all said
She couldn't make it on her own
Now the sky's a little smaller

And it doesn't seem like home
