lyrics

don't sing me love songs
you know I can't hear them
for my heart is broken
like waves on the shore

but tell me your stories
over and over
it's the sound of your voice
I adore

we met in summer
your voice made my blood roar like the sea
but you loved another
I couldn't help falling
it was too late for me

I wait by the water
I watch the horizon
for signs of your ship
returning to land

you're no buckskin stallion
just a sad eyed rambling man
you've no golden galleon
but you do have my heart in your hands

you were so gentle
holding my head until all was still
I was so sentimental
thinking I could bend you to my will

I wish I were the traveler
I wish I were leaving you behind
a thin line against the vastness
a sliver of dark against the sky

but I am no rover
I need companion by my side
so don't sing me love songs
or I'll never get to sleep tonight

don't sing me love songs
you know I can't hear them
for my heart is broken
like waves on the shore

but tell me your stories
over and over
the sound of your voice awakens me
and I drown
