Husband had I and wife had he
Each with our children on our knees
But I didn’t fight when he came for me
Dreaming as one that we were free

I and my lover we hatched a plan
Wrapped up my youngest and swiftly ran
Started anew on a foreign land
This miner’s lady with gold in her hand, oh

The sun it is setting down into the waves
The currents are crossing
What is it he craves?
I must possess you, my beauty, he raved
It is pulling me under
And I cannot be saved

Two children born to him and I
Under the neighbours’ watchful eyes
Showing them all our most practiced disguise
One step ahead of all our lies, oh

The sun it is setting down into the waves
The currents are crossing
What is it he craves?
I must possess you, my beauty, he raved
It is pulling me under
And I cannot be saved

Well I remember my last day
Out with my lover on the bay
Safe in our home our two children did play
Only this son of mine did stay, oh

Oars in the water make no sound
Here’s where my boat turns upside down
Here’s where my son and I were drowned
Haunting the shore where we never were found, oh

The sun it is setting down into the waves
The currents are crossing
What is it he craves?
I have possessed you, my beauty, he raved
It is pulling me under
And I cannot be
No, we cannot be
Oh, he’s the only one tonight
Who will be saved

But not from me
No, not from me
Ah, oars in the water
