"The Mariner" is sad, but not desolate. A friend once described it as a song about being lovelorn.
My baby left for the sea
"I’ll come back to you," he promised me
and it’s been so many years
now i have cried an ocean of tears
time is passing us by, my love
and you’re still the only one I’m dreaming of.
your laugh, your skin,
oh love, you have it all.
And I still buy you flowers in the evening every Fall, every Fall.
If you were out there, I’d come calling for you.
But you’re here in my heart, so there’s no need to.
And I still scream your name in my dreams.
Only to stand, alone, in the sea.
And time is cruel, it’s passing me by.
It’s left me alone, left me high and dry.
My heart will always be yours,
left throbbing on the tear soaked shores.
My heart is yours, heart is yours.
