I can't go home
I cannot sleep
I cannot give
I cannot keep

This heart of stone has left me here
With only rumors of your left
I guess to see you leaving was for the best

I dream too much
and spend my days
Like a sailor lost at sea
And you were like a mermaid
in that Danish fairytale
I guess the best thing that I could do
is to sail

Away from this sunken soldiers ball
Away, do you remember me at all?
I have no better words than "Thank you and goodbye"
I wish I didn't have to see our love die

At last I'm home
My horse will rest
This tattoed heart
This trembling chest must be alone
And carry this sorrow back to bed
I hope there was no innocent blood shed

Away from this sunken soldiers ball
Away, do you remember me at all?
I have no better words than "Thank you and goodbye"
I wish I didn't have to see our love die

    General Commenti think that she is far from home and falls in love. she has wonderful time there, of course with him. but she must turn back because of some reasons or responsibilities and she doesn't want to. finally she leaves him and goes home and she isn't sure if he will remember her anymore.

    and i think "this tattoed heart" means her heart which is so in love that it is like "tattoed". it's so fascinating.
