Talk to me darling
I am all ears
The cabin is cold
And I'm lonely

Talk to me darling
We're all alone here
I could make use
Of a story

Is it really true what they say
That you're from another place far away
Cross the ocean
Are you on the run
Who are you running from
Baby know you can trust me

Stay with me darling
Do not give up
You're shaking with fever
Your skin is so hot

I can make the pain go away
Just take a sip of this and swallow it slowly
You don't have to fear
I will stay here and watch over you always

I can heal you if you let me
If you trust me then lay down your guard
Let me undress you slowly
Let me find out what's troubling your heart


The night was young
The wind still warm
I laid down my gun
In my lady's chamber

There was a knock on the door
But she was there before
Shut it with a bang
And told me

Go get the king
We'll be going on soon
And the queen she is waiting

The castle was lit with candles
And honeysuckle fumes rose through the floors
And that's all I can remember
until I washed up on these shores
