When the children were babies and played on the beach
You came up behind me, I saw you go by
You were always so close and still within reach.
Whatever made you want to change your mind
So easy to look at, so hard to define.
They run to the water their buckets to fill
I can still see the shells falling out of their hands
As they follow each other back up the hill.
Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life
Radiant jewel, mystical wife.
Drinking white rum in a Portugal bar
Them playing leapfrog and hearing about Snow White
You in the marketplace in Savanna-la-Mar.
It's all so clear, I could never forget
Loving you is the one thing I'll never regret.
I'd taken the cure and had just gotten through
Staying up for day in the Chelsea Hotel
Writing "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" for you.
Wherever we travel we're never apart
Beautiful lady, so dear to my heart.
How did I meet you ? I don't know
A messenger sent me in a tropical storm
You were there in the winter, moonlight on the snow
And on Lily Pond Lane when the weather was warm.
Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress
You must forgive me my unworthiness.
And a piece of an old ship that lies on the shore
You always responded when I needed your help
You gimme a map and a key to your door.
Glamorous nymph with an arrow and bow
Don't ever leave me, don't ever go.
