Ursula (The Swansea Song) - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

I once loved a lady who did change into a child
I saw the light of day shine in her eyes
I loved her like a baby and i raised her to the sky
It seems the light of day did pass me by
Now she walks along the seashore
And she listens to the sea
But i can't say if she ever thinks of me

If i were of the ocean
Or a wave upon the sand
Or just a drop of water in her hand
A pebble or a broken shell
A rock upon the shore
I doubt if i could love her any more

Now she walks along the seashore
And she listens to the sea
And i can't say if she ever thinks of me no i can't say if she ever thinks of me
