Seagulls (Great Big Sea)

She left St John's one day in May
dressed in her Sunday best,
A kind man sat beside her
as 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, "We'll see you in the fall."

But you know that she wants to try,
never will let 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,
Her new friends don't understand,
they just tell her to be strong;
She made some decent money, yeah,
but nothing comes for free,
The busy streets just don't compete
with the sky, the rocks and sea.

Ah, you know that she wants to try,
never will let you see her cry,
You know that she wants to try,
she's got seagulls in her eyes.

Her parents came at Easter time,
they wanted her to stay,
But she went and got a panel van
and 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.

But you know that she wants to try,
never will let you see her cry,
You know that she wants to try,
she's got seagulls in her eyes.

Ah, you know that she wants to try,
never will let you see her cry,
You know that she wants to try,
she's got seagulls in her eyes.
She's got seagulls in her eyes.
