The crest of the waves break over my head
My strenght's about gone and soon I'll be dead
I'd rather be dead out here in the sea than to love a woman who never loved me
Oh the water's so cold out here in the dark
The water's so cold as cold as your heart
The lights from the shore are fast growing dim the water's so cold I can hardly swim

I offered my ring I offered my name she said you're a child she put me to shame
If she saw me now she'd have to agree most men couldn't swim this far out to sea
Oh the water's so cold...
The water's so cold I can hardly swim
