“‘Twas the worst of times for tinkers like you and me.
So in search of fortune I took to the sea.”
“Round my neck, a key you said was to your heart.
Held it desperately as your ship left the dock.”
I can’t forget, I won’t forgive this sea
For the endless hurt it gave to me.
I want to stab, I want to kill this sea.
Took you away, took you away from me.
“Silks from Singapore, a treasure from Tripoli for you.
And from Suvla Bay, I’ve scars for souvenirs.”
“Love, your son was born. I wish you could see.
Eyes the same as yours and cries just like me.”
“Years have passed – How many, I don’t know anymore.
Lost adrift at sea, a storm comes. It’s getting cold.”
“I stand under moors searching a sea of blue
And forever more, I’ll wait here for you.”
