I am a lonely sailor roaming o'er the ocean blue,
Hoping that someday I will see again my love so true.
The fates have taken me so far from her side,
When I will return is the choice of the tide.
Every day I beg the winds to bring me back to shore,
But til that day comes I will journey ever more.
I met my lover on the cliffs that overlook the sea,
She was the most beautiful sight that there could ever be.
I told her of the love I felt in my heart,
Asking her to wait for me, although we'd be apart...
Every night the tears fall down while thinking of my love,
Hoping that we both are praying to the stars above.
It has been five long years since last I saw my love's sweet face.
Upon the sea I can but dream about her warm embrace.
Someday I'll reach my home and find her waiting there,
Ever faithful through all her years of despair...
