Once, my love, when you fell into the sea–
And that horrid tide took you away from me
I searched the waves for any sign,
But soon knew you’d drowned in the brine.
I spent my life by the shore,
Wishing for our times before–
But lost, my love, below the waves–
You joined brave sailors in their watery graves.
That horrid tide took you from me–
Once, my love, when you fell into the sea.
