Song of the Solway, song of the sea
You?re cold and you?re cruel, you care not for me,
You sing with the wind, you go your own way,
You laugh and you cry, yet you shed not a tear.
You beckon to me, in wild moods and calm,
You tear at my heart in the wildest of ways
Till at last you are at rest, then I like you best.
For my soul you becalm.
Song of the sea,
Taunting me, Haunting me
Like an enchantress you seem,
Song of the Solway - Song of the sea.
The Solway Estuary
