She stands alone St Agnes Eve
Down by the shore where he sailed away
She turns away each passing year
towards the comfort of a strangers heart

For her true love was a low born man
too poor to match her fathers plan
and he was cast off to a foreign land
and yet they swore that they would meet again

Across the ocean he mops his brow
And stops to wonder where is she now
They cannot know they both watch alone
He fears her heart may now have turned to stone

A lonely seagull her vigil mocks
the loveless sea hides the broken rocks
only the wind will know her lover’s name
but in her heart he will always remain
