The Longest Waves Are The Deepest

The lights were low at the inn
and so was I that night.
My girl and I weren't getting far
I was unsure of where we were.

I met a sailor, he said to me

the longest waves are the deepest.
The shallow waves don't last long.
The longest waves are the deepest.
Let it grow.
Let it grow.

The man was grey as the sky
he had the sea inside.
I told him of my troubled heart,
of all the doubts I tried to hide.

His eyes were smiling before he said

the longest waves are the deepest.
The shallow waves don't last long.
The longest waves are the deepest.
Let it grow.
Let it grow.

(solo)

Now forty years have gone by
since I was there that night.
My girl is sitting by my side
although her hair has all turned white,

just like the sailor, who said to me

the longest waves are the deepest.
The shallow waves don't last long.
The longest waves are the deepest.
Now I know.
Now I know.
