Hoping to die just
I read the notes before you left
You said death will have no words with me
What tears this love is land and sea

I was charmed by your poise
But he who has is he who destroys
And if this in fact is wrong
Then love just has no value at all

If love consumes us through miles of ocean
I'll swim the distance my dear
My chances lessen through hours between us
And you won't come back I fear
I fear

If my face looks tired then my heart looks worse
But I'll go it alone
And when over words
Letters seem brief and disheartening
I'll sing with the slightest of hope
Far away from you
Far away from you

So if London snows too much
And you can't seem to well adjust
Then send a note my way
To tell me of your foreign dismay

If love consumes us through miles of ocean
I'll swim the distance my dear
My chances lessen through hours between us
And you won't come back I fear
I fear
