To My Love Across the Sea

To my love far away across the sea, The calendar slogs by as I long for thee

To my love far away across the sea,

The calendar slogs by as I long for thee,

As I yearn for the future days of you and me.

Those future days dance just out of reach —

I stretch out for them, and away they flee.

I’m imprisoned in luxury, far away from thee

The salt of fading yesterdays

Leaves me in a daze,

In a swamp of ache

Will the waves that separate us

Ever let us touch?

Will the miles that keep us apart

Ever have mercy on my broken heart?

Until the day my fingers meet yours

I’ll keep crying behind closed doors

Waiting for you to land on my shores
