lyrics

Sea Shanty for Helena (Richard Clare)

Life isn't lonely when I've got you along
Love is the ocean that we're sailing upon
The swell is exciting but provisions are low
I don't want to land but we're gonna sink if you don't row
We're gonna sink if you don't row

And in the night that lasts forever
We saw our spirits fly
Winter storms may last forever
But our love will never die

I can feel your pain
Now we are lost in sorrow
Tears on your face
Will you be gone tomorrow

Make love under cover and I'll drown in your arms
Even the mermaids are now losing their charms
The sharks may be hungry but they don't frighten me
You are the girl with whom I wish to be lost at sea
With whom I wish to be lost at sea

And in the night that lasts forever
We saw our spirits fly
Winter storms may last forever
But our love will never die

The cover image shows 'The Kiss (Lovers)' (detail) by Gustav Klimt (1907-08).
