The Youthful Boy

This song is by Kate Rusby and appears on the album Ghost (2014).

My love is on the water, let him sink or swim,
If he can be without me then I'll be without him,
My love he is a youthful boy but younger though am I,
And countless times he's told me that he'll marry me or die.

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea,
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free.

Our meeting is a pleasure but the parting is a grief,
A false hearted cruel man is worse than a thief,
A thief he will steal from you but leave you with a heart,
A false hearted lover he will pick your soul apart.

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea,
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free.

I have been forsaken but my heart forewarned,
And surely he's mistaken if he thinks that I'll mourn,
I'll take off the black dress and I will wear the green,
The shards of ice within my heart will never more be seen.

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea,
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free.

My love is on the water, let him sink or swim,
If he can be without me then I'll be without him,
My love he is a youthful boy but younger though am I,
And though I'm fair I will not dare to love more 'til I die.

And oh won't you help me now to sail on the sea,
And I'll drift over perfect waters, I'll break free.
