That Savage Sea

The savage sea comes calling me In good times and in bad Reminding me of the friends I lost And the lovers I once had But it never comes in the daylight Never steps out into the dawn It creeps up on me in the shadowed night Stealing behind my yawn So goodnight dear I love you here In this sordid salty bed The sheets are stained with blood and tears But your angry love remains But the angry sea it never stops It comes and goes and comes and goes and comes It stays near to me like a stranger’s tune Like when the old man starts to hum I can’t recall when the setting sun Last dropped below my eye I guess the savage sea had robbed me Turning memory into lie I wish back on that day When lovers turned to hate But forget me in the evening For me it’s just too late
