Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lake

I placed my heart in the hands of a sailor

Which is not so easy to do

So often it seems they love the sea life

Much more than they love you

But he doesn’t know it

and I doubt he suspects

I have a love of my own

Before I knew him or anyone else

The water was always my home

I wish he would notice just for a moment

In the moonlight that touches the waves

I love it as much, if not more than he does

I’m a lady of the lake
