(barre the Gm)

Intro: D   D

A          E
Long afloat on shipless oceans
G            Gm
I did all my best to smile
A                E
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
D              Gm
Drew me loving into your eyes

  A             G          D                A
  And you sang "Sail to me, sail to me; Let me enfold you."
  Gm                   E           D
  Here I am, here I am waiting to hold you.

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,

  For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow:
  O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow"

as version*

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I'm as riddled at the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with Death my bride?

  Hear me sing, "Swim to me, Swim to me, Let me enfold you:
  Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you"

as version*

Version*:  A  E  D  Gm  A  E  D  A  Gm        E  D
