Flamenco guitar backing throughout
Deep in the night I climb the stairway to the sea
And pretend you are there beside me, so close beside me, watching the sea
I see us there upon the stairway to the sea
Where the mist softly kissed two lovers, hiding from others our love by the sea
CHORUS
Why try to find a new love when your voice keeps calling me?
I'm just a lonely pris'ner of the stairway to the sea
And there you'll find me waiting for the day of your return
But till that day how memories can burn
This is my prayer upon the stairway to the sea
That you soon will be there before me, whisp'ring "Adore me" there by the sea
Instrumental first two lines of CHORUS
And there you'll find me waiting for the day of your return
But till that day how memories can burn
This is my prayer upon the stairway to the sea
That you soon will be there before me, whisp'ring "Adore me" there by the sea
There by the sea
There by the sea!
