The Fall Lyrics – The Black Lillies

I am not a rich man, I have no fortune to bear
I was born in the desert where a flower is so rare
I am not a rich girl, I have no diamond to share
I was born on the ocean, a thousand stars I wear
I am not a sailor, I am no captain at sea
I was born in the desert and a captain I’ll not be
I was born on the water, my father sailed the ocean wide
A mermaid my mother, I sail along with the tide
I am but a dreamer, I’ve seen you in between
The shadows and the sunshine falling down on me
Would you be my lover if I gave you all I had?
Flowers from the desert and gold from the ocean sand
And I’ll love you in the springtime, I’ll love you through the fall
I’ll hold your hand in the cold and rain when the first snowflakes fall
I am but a dreamer and I’ve seen you in between
The shadows and the sunshine falling down on me
