lyrics

You’ve come too far to turn now
That ancient dust lies easily
You’ll hear the footfall on the mat again
One day
You’ll trim the lamp you set out for the sea

You’ll rise at midnight hold back the dawn
To keep a watch upon the quay
You name the east wind I’ll blow with the west
One day
We’ll trim the lamp we set out for the sea

I know every stone
Every storm petrel at sea
One day
You’ll trim the lamp that you set out for me
