lyrics

We met my love on American soil one orange colored day
We fused like candlewax, knowing full well that you were bound away
One and two and three little weeks, we could chart the passing time
But one and two and three and four could return no love ot mine

No my love, but an ocean lies between of beasts and bones and sky
There's unknown danger hiding in the water below
And the sea she don't listen to me when I try to ask her why
Oh my love how could i ever know
That I'd never ever live to see the wicked, wicked west wind blow

Our crew was true and our ship is was too, as we sailed that summer day
Through crests of strong, white water we fought and my heart was swept away
One and two and three hard weeks til we reached our native shore
But one and two my mind with you, my heart could hurt no more

No my love, but an ocean lies between of beasts and bones and sky
There's unknown danger hiding in the water below
And the sea she don't listen to me when I try to ask her why
Oh my love how could i ever know
That I'd never ever live to see the wicked, wicked west wind blow

All my letters wandered away, saltwater mixed with tears
Til one day I finally begged you return and ease my fears
One and two and three lonely nights til your ship would leave the shore
But one, two, three in the dead of night was too much to ask you for

No my love, but an ocean lies between of beasts and bones and sky
There's unknown danger hiding in the water below
And the sea she don't listen to me when I try to ask her why
Oh my love how could i ever know
That I'd never ever live to see the wicked, wicked west wind blow

I set sail through nightfall/They couldn't see the rocks waiting in the dark
I heard close your heart's call/I coudln't see the dark swallowing my hopes
I'll fight through this damned see/I didn't know the cost when I let you go
Our love won't be lost into this wild blue mystery/How could I know?

No my love, but an ocean lies between of beasts and bones and sky
There's unknown danger hiding in the water below
And the sea she don't listen to me when I try to ask her why
Oh my love how could i ever know
That I'd never ever live to see the wicked, wicked west wind blow
