This Sea

‘Twas the worst of times for thingers 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, 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.

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, from me.

Years have passed. How many, I don’t know anymore.
Lost, adrift at sea. A storm comes. It’s getting cold.
I stand on the moors searching a sea of blue
And forevermore I’ll wait here for you.
