lyrics

My baby and me we were lost at sea
We were pulled apart by the tug of the tide
Well it broke my heart and I nearly died
Didn’t know what to do
Without you

Washed up on a foreign shore
Just another piece of the flotsam
Rooted through the wreckage for you
Never been so scared and lonesome

A knife and pan and pot, The Captain’s pipe and flint
Some rope, and a barrel of rum
Even found my old ukulele, but
I’d give it all up to have you beside me, Hun

My baby and me we were lost at sea
We were pulled apart by the tug of the tide
Well it broke my heart and I nearly died
Didn’t know what to do
Without you

Waited my whole life for a love like ours
And when I found you you were snatched away
I’m afraid to wander too far
If you’re still adrift you just might wash up in this bay

I do my best to distract myself
And keep the fire burning day and night
I pray you’ll see the curls of purple smoke
Or catch the flicker of the firelight

My baby and me we were lost at sea
We were pulled apart by the tug of the tide
Well it broke my heart and I nearly died
Didn’t know what to do
Without you
