Amour Interdit

Like a ship that docks at night
From treacherous waters you flee
Calm comes with mornings dawn
You head back out to sea  

While hoisting up your anchor
Once again I must resign
I can not tether you my love
Because you are not mine

So in the shadows I remain
To all the world I’m hidden
Clenching onto something wrong
A love that is forbidden

I know that I should step aside
Say goodbye to mon amore
Set your sails sweet Captain
Leave this outlawed shore

Stormy seas will come and go
Times of comfort and distress
Man your sails Sailor boy
Your crew you must address

Should you ever grow weary
Of the sea and the sand
Hand over the wheel
And relinquish your command

Cast that anchor one last time
Sing your farewell song
Then come to me Sailor boy
This time it won’t be wrong
