When I stay on the shore of the coast My eyes are looking over the rolling sea And my heart feels the infinity of the mighty Atlantic. I close my eyes and feel a loss in my heart. You are here and you are gone at the same time Like the waters of the tide of the mighty Atlantic. I can see the brightness of your love in your eyes. Of course, I know I should have let you go a long time ago, But my heart just couldn’t. And so, in all my foolishness I have to bear the blame of my cowardice. I open my eyes and have a look over the calm sea And I realize Something of myself is lost forever Like a boat in the roaring sea Of the mighty Atlantic.
