Oh my lady, sweet lady, ring them bells for me
Because i am waiting to see you again from across the sea
Ooh you were a mother to the moon
But I am the light a million miles away

Rosemary is in the window and she's counting the stars
And like Orion with his arrow and his bow i am reaching eastward trying to find you where you are
Ooh I'm not the only one for you
And like a boat with no oars i am standing on these shores for you

Like a blanket of city lights your eyes shine like the fourth of July
And there's a diya in your window babe, but the fire don't know which way to fly
Ooh and through the street cars of this train
I saw a light it was dying as Orion slowly faded away

Oh my lady, sweet lady, ring them bells for me
Because I'm still waiting beneath the darkness for you to set me free
Ooh and in the morning I'll be gone
But every night with the moon I'll be the light in your room 'til dawn
