Fish & bird

by Tom Waits


They bought a round for the sailor
And they heard his tale
Of a world that was so far away
And a song that we´d never heard
A song of a little bird
That fell in love with a whale

He said, ´You cannot live in the ocean´
And she said to him
´You never can live in the sky´
But the ocean is filled with tears
And the sea turns into a mirror
There´s a whale in the moon when it´s clear
And a bird on the tide

Please don´t cry
Let me dry your eyes

So tell me that you will wait for me
Hold me in your arms
I promise we never will part
I´ll never sail back to the time
But I´ll always pretend you´re mine
Though I know that we both must part
You can live in my heart

Please don´t cry
Let me dry your eyes

And tell me that you will wait for me
Hold me in your arms
I promise we never will part
I´ll never sail back to the time
But I´ll always pretend that you´re mine
I know that we both must part
You can live in my heart
