Off in the evening wind
Towards my ivory home again
Off on the roof is dotted steam
Moss across the skin

Close every open shade
Let no light or dividing rays
Mine is a simple, lonesome home
Golden and decayed

To your window, quiet and serene
Came to me in three listless dreams
Go to the silver city, down by the sea
Salty air from there to where we'll be

Four leagues passed up, greater we'll be
Until you are teeth to the sea
I am forgiven like a dog onto me
Like the day the dying wave I'll see

Not today, forever and a day
'Til the dying bell has blown across the sea

Close every open shade
Let no light or dividing rays

There are holy roses and thorns
There are only two of us
Row for forever darling, row for the sea
Broken wave and dying bell I'll see

Not today, forever and a day
'Til the dying bell has blown across the sea

Close every open shade
Let no light or dividing rays
Mine is a simple, lonesome home
Golden and decayed
