"The Bergen" as written by and Jez Lowe....
Sleep, why wake me with these dreams that you bring?
Dreams came to me where I lay
Deep the melody the wild waves sing
My love is far, far away

Chorus:
Oh pity the heart, the wild waves part
My love sails the bonnie barque the Bergen

They heap their nets upon the decks by the light
Dreams came to me where I lay
Then creep out gentle in the dead of night
My love is far, far away

(Chorus)

They reap their harvest from the cold night sea
Dreams came to me where I lay
It reeks with herring in the hold for me
My love is far, far away

(Chorus twice)

Steep waves ride above his cold, fair head
Dreams came to me where I lay
Oh keep him safe to lie here in my bed
My love is far, far away

(Chorus)

It weeps with rain tonight where my love lies
Dreams came to me where I lay
Oh wipe the foreign sand from out of his eyes
My love is far, far away

(Chorus twice)
