Seafarer (Walsh Kate)

I tasted salt air when I saw the Seafarer, He came from nowhere, I tried hard not to stare, And into the night air he laid my heart bare. I felt the warm sand under my cold hands, And seeped in his sun tan, It wasn’t what I had planned. ‘Cause he has the heart of a good man, A heart I don’t understand but I’m gonna learn about it, I want to keep this man; I want to sing about it, I want to call his name; I want to swim into it. Please, let him have me, For all that I’m worth and all that I know. Please, let him have me, For all that I’m worth, he’s at the centre of my earth. I tasted salt air when I kissed the Seafarer, And into his arms deeper, I fell from old keepers. And under the warm sand I buried my cold hands, And into the sea I swam, Leaving those old plans. ‘Cause he has the heart of a good man, A heart I don’t understand, but I’m gonna learn about it, I want to keep this man; I want to sing about it, I want to call his name; I want to swim into it. Please, let him have me, For all that I’m worth and all that I know. Please, let him have me, For all that I’m worth, he’s at the centre of my earth.
