about

1912: Violet Swims but the Ship Sinks recounts the possible emotions of Violet Jessup, who survived the sinking of the Titanic on that icy April night.

lyrics

A cold clear night, we’re full steam ahead
We’ll stretch her legs on the ocean’s bed
Nothing spared; not even the time
We’re the jewel of the White Star Line

And the steam burns on
As the quartet plays a song
And we all go down in the ocean

Who would guess, we’d sink like a stone
Out at sea, so many miles from home
In disbelief, we queue for a boat
The ship she sounds her dying note

And the steam burns on
As the quartet plays a song
And we all go down in the ocean

We say goodbye and we say our prayers
We drift all night in the cold spring air
And then we see in the bright clear dawn
There’s nothing now: the ship, she’s gone

And the steam burns on
As the quartet plays a song
And we all go down in the ocean
