Northern Passage

I went down to muddy waters
I went down to raging seas
And I told you not to miss me
When I finally set you free

It has been a lonely lifetime
Since I last did travel home
Been a thousand nighttimes
Since I held you in my arms

Please don’t tell me that you love me
When I love another so
Please don’t wait there by the window
For a light in the falling snow

We have sounded just six fathoms
Soon we’ll scrape the ocean floor
Start the search for another chasm
Keep a lamp lit at the fore

break on verse

Oh the memory of our lovin’
It’s enough to keep me warm
As the waves cap o’er the gunwales
And the moon lights up the foam

Please don’t tell me that you love me
When I love another so
Please don’t wait there by the window
For a light in the falling snow

I went down to muddy waters
I went down to raging seas
And I told you not to miss me
When I finally set you free
Yes I told you not to miss me
When I finally set you free
