Oh, my love, my darling,
I’ve hungered for your touch, a long, lonely time.
Time goes by so slowly and time can do so much.
Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love, God speed your love to me.
Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea.
Lonely rivers sigh, “Wait for me, wait for me!
I’ll be coming home, wait for me!”
Lonely mountains gaze at the stars, at the stars
Waiting for the dawn of the day.
All alone, I gaze at the stars, at the stars
Dreaming of my love far away.
