Lyrics

I once was a noble king
You remember well
You never lacked for anything
Until the fortune fell

Fortune is a fickle friend
A fickle enemy as well
And heaven knew not so many leagues
From the precipice of hell

Don’t you leave me stranded here
On the other side
Won’t you lead me to your shore
Over water wide
All my love
Water wide
Water wide
All my love
Water wide

And if you were to stay with me
I would rise again
And to our love I would erect
An immortal monument

Without a word being ever heard
It would sing of all your treasures
It would open wide and let inside
Ships laden for your pleasure

Don’t you leave me stranded here
As so many have
My faithful man disbanded here
Left for distant lands
All my love
Distant lands
Distant lands
All my love
Distant lands

Don’t you leave me stranded here
On the other side
Won’t you lead me to your shore
Over water wide
All my love
Water wide
Water wide
All my love
Water wide
