Song Description

Story of a love interrupted by unforeseen events.



Stumbling down a crooked trail, I came upon a lake.
Your schooner sailing blithely past, you did a doubletake.
You told me . . . when I'd lose my path,
Spirits fading fast,
Sailing at half-mast, . . . you'd come.

There were times I'd think of you, wondering where you sailed.
In my secret voice I called . . . and you never failed.
When my troubles grew,
Couldn't see things through,
Right out of the blue . . . you'd come. (Repeat these three lines.)

You swooped in like an eagle; you courted your white swan.
Then a distant thunder . . . called and you were gone.

Now I'm blessed with souvenirs, bittersweet but kind.
Withered leaves of memory . . . fall and I don't mind.
Letters that you'd send
Reached me now and then.
Still, I wonder when . . . you'll come.

Letters that you'd send
Reached me now and then.
Still, I wonder when . . . you'll come.
