If you shall sail away tomorrow, dear
May I pass by the foaming white beach side
And lay my soul to rest beneath the pier
How can I live if I live in this fear?
Not enough times, i tried, you tried, we tried
And soon you’ll sail away tomorrow, dear
Is it worth living worlds away, from here?
Or worth living without your love, your bride?
If so, I’ll lay my soul below the pier
My heart like an anchor, it pulls you near
But distance binds me underneath the tide
How can you sail away today, my dear?
May I sink to the ocean floor, so clear
The waves stroking my feet with every stride
And soon burry my soul beneath the pier
My heart is soaked and salty as a tear
All of my bones have somehow pruned inside
And now you are sailing away, my dear
I lay my soul to sleep beneath the pier
