G G                 D D                        
On the floating, ship-less oceans.
C C Em Em
I did all my best to smile.
G G D D
Till your singing eyes and fingers.
C C Em Em
Drew me loving to your isle.

G G F F C C
And you sang, "Sail to me, sail to me.
G G
Let me enfold you”.
Em Em D D
Here I am, here I am.
C C G G
Waiting to hold you.

G G D D
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
C C Em Em
Were you here when I was full sail?
G G D D
Now my foolish boat is leaning.
C C Em Em
Broken lovelorn on your rocks.

G G F F C C
For you sang, "Touch me not. Touch me not.
G G
Come back tomorrow”.
Em Em D D
Ohh my heart, ohh my heart.
C C G G
Shies from the sorrow.

G G D D
I'm as puzzled as the oyster.
C C Em Em
I'm as troubled as the tide.
G G D D
Should I stand amid the breakers?
C C Em Em
Or shall I lie with death, my bride?

G G F F C C
Hear me sing “Swim to me, swim to me.
G G
Let me enfold you”.
Em Em D D
Here I am, here I am.
C C G G
Waiting to hold you.
