YOU KNOW ME BABY


Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
It's better my darling I promise you this
The next time I hold you I'm not letting go
Will you wait for me darling I need to know

Well, you know I'm a sailor and tomorrow we sail
It's a hard way of living but I know it well
And if I surrender my life to the sea
You can marry another it's alright with me

Though we won't be together again 'till the spring
Just imagine the treasures I'll bring
Come lay with me, stay with me, soon I'll be gone
But I will remember you all the winter's long
When I return to the one that I miss
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss

When the mornings are warm and the valleys are green
I'll come back from wherever I've been
We will give up the ocean forever, I know

Lyrics from Ann Ternheim & Dave Ferguson's The Longer the Waiting, The Night Visitor
