There's no one who will take me by that shore
Close to the smoke, far from the fire of your harbor
And if I'm awake this time I'll know
All over your eyes, a storm is rolling over
Rolling over, rolling over

You can take away the divine, my dear
And comb your hair
And I won't mind at all
Even though the thoughts behind
I came just to remind you I love you so
I love you so

There is no one who will take me by that shore
But the waves washing down, the waves washing down on your shoulders
But if I'm awake this time, this time I'll know
All over your eyes, the storm is nearly over, nearly over

And you can take away the divine, my dear
And comb your hair
And I won't mind at all
Even though the thoughts behind
I came just to remind you I love you so
I love you so
Oh, I love you so

    Lyric Correctionthere is no one who will take me by that shore
    close to the smoke, far from the fire of your harbour
    and if I am awake this time I'll know
    all over your eyes a storm is rolling over
    rolling over, rolling over

    you can take away the divine, my dear
    and comb your hair
    and I won't mind at all
    even though the thought's behind
    I came just to remind you I love you so
    I love you so

    there is no one who will take me by that shore
    but the waves washing down, the waves washing down on your shoulders
    and if I'm awake this time, this time I'll know
    all over your eyes the storm is nearly over
    nearly over

    and you can take away the divine, my dear
    and comb your hair
    and I won't mind at all
    even though the thought's behind
    I came just to remind you I love you so
    I love you so
    I love you so

    General CommentA wonderful song! There's a sense of wistfulness to it. The autoharp is an amazing instrument, and I'd love to see her play it live somewhere besides Youtube! Her performance of the Shore videotaped (and uploaded on YT) at Paris has a different feeling... I like it better than the album's version.

    Whatever the version, the song's most likely about acquiescing to love. I think.
