I am a sailor.
You are a dancer.
We sail and we dance along.
I, to the beat of the thundering waves.
You, to the waves of your own heartstrings’ song.
Living to me is the life of the sea.
And the life that I live is just where I belong.
I steer by the stars and I rise with the sun
While you dance and you sing to your own heartstrings’ song.
I won’t ask you to wait.
You can’t ask me to change.
But I hope that our hearts will beat strong.
Mine, to the crash of the thundering waves.
Yours, to the time of your own heartstrings’ song.
For true love can be like a ship on the sea.
It can sail between loving hearts parted so long.
So I’ll steer by your passion, you’ll dance to my touch
And we’ll thrill to the tune of our own heartstrings’ song.
