12, 11, 10, 9
Outside my house, I’ve built a shrine
8, 7, 6, 5
And I have dreamt, he’s still alive
4, 3, 2, 1
In the lantern light, his voice is sung
Row, row, row, row
The time is right for us to go

Wane the night and all her darkness
Daphne froze in her white nightgown
Cotton build round her body
The sea is calling me down
The sea is calling me down

Bloom the night and all her darkness
Daphne froze on the precipice
Years of tears absolved her body
As she cried nevermore
As she cried nevermore

1, 2, 3, 4
For you my love, I’ll wait no more
5, 6, 7, 8
Leave your kisses to rest at the garden gate
9, 10, 11, 12
Because I’ve got to save myself
Row, row, row, row
The time is right for you to go
