Lost At Sea


Like a tidal wave you came to me
And carried away my heart,
Como te quiero, mi marinero,
You won me right from the start

An ocean of love you offered me,
A gentle wave being your voice,
Like stowaways, we hide in the world,
And in silence, we must rejoice

Our boat is just drifting aimlessly,
We haven't a single care,
No fears, no apprehension, just sweet love,
While we breathe in heaven's pure air

I see nothing but fair skies for us,
Faraway hills dance with joy,
The wind may gust, but our sails are strong,
This is our dream, sailor boy

On a sea of love, the moon's our guide,
The spray.... the wind.... you and me,
Cuánto te quiero, mi marinero,
Forever, let's stay lost at sea!

    Are you looking for a cook or a deckhand? Even a voyeuristic sharing of such a life would be more than most of us dare to hope for! : -) (Report) Reply
