	        Bb             F 
Long afloat on shipless oceans 
 Eb           Gm 
I did all my best to smile 
 Bb                 F 
til your stinging eyes and fingers 
 Eb              Gm 
Drew me loving to your isle 

And you sang 
Sail to me 
Sail to me 
Let me enfold you 
Here I am 
Here I am 
          Eb     Gm 
Waiting to hold you 

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

  Bb            Ab           Gm                         Bb 
For you sing, touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow: 
Gm                     F       Eb        Gm 
O my heart, o my heart shies from the sorrow 

Bb             F 
I am puzzled as the newborn child 
Eb             Gm 
I am troubled as the tide: 
Bb              F 
Should I stand amid the breakers? 
Eb                 Gm 
Should I lie with death my bride? 

Bb            Ab         Gm             Bb 
Hear me sing, swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you: 
Gm                    F           Eb   Gm 
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you
