Long afloat on shipless oceans I did all my best to smile 'Til your singing eyes and fingers Drew me loving to your isle And you sang Sail to me Sail to me Let me enfold you Here I am Here I am Waiting to hold you Did I dream you dreamed about me? Were you hare when I was fox? Now my foolish boat is leaning Broken lovelorn on your rocks, For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow: O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow" I am puzzled as the newborn child I am troubled at the tide: Should I stand amid the breakers? Should I lie with death my bride? Hear me sing, "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you: Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you"
