It was a moonless night
Stars were shining bright
Your blue ocean eyes
Hypnotized in just one glance

Tenderly you took my hand
Led me to the sand
Where we danced
As in a dream

Where are you sailor, sailor, sailor
Where are you sailor, sailor, sailor

Wading in the water wide
Traveling with the tide
Your arms held me tight
As we entered in the deep

Swimming in the swelling sea
Black and glistening
Your lips kissed mine
And I died

Where are you sailor, sailor, sailor
Where are you sailor, sailor, sailor

Oh, in the night
I can hear sea lullabies
Though you're away
Sailing on your white ship albatross
I will remain steadfast on the crystal shore
'Till, captain, you return once more

It was a moonless night
The planets all aligned
We received new life
As our bodies become one

Flesh to flesh
And soul to soul
Our two halves were whole
But we had to leave the dream

Where are you sailor, sailor, sailor
Where are you sailor, sailor, sailor

For you I'm waiting, waiting, sailor
For you my heart beats
Like a mistress of the sea
