A Distant Kind Of Love


A dove calls her mate in the moon
But a sea wind calls, go not too soon...
For the night is young in circles now
The waves are rolling deep and blue.

So' it is for you; the world was made
To lift your feathers above the wave!
So dip your wing tips in the salt rock air
Brave a poles ivory stair; if you dare!

For it's here your true love's heart lies
Anchored beneath the lustrous skies
Wave after wave- wing on wing!
The dove white creature clung, curing...

Until the sun in past shadows flame
Up and blessed the bird's dead name
For the night is young in circles now
The waves are rolling deep and blue.

Wave after wave- wing on wing!
That dove white creature sort to cling...
Curing... deeper and deeper
Rolling... deeper and deeper

The little dove flew
To the heart of the moon,
To that part of the moon,
That could be you...
