Don Gibson – Sea of Heartbreak Lyrics

The lights in the harbor
Don’t shine for me
I’m like a lost ship
Adrift on the sea
Yeah, the sea of heartbreak
Lost love and loneliness
Memories of your caress so divine
How I wish you were mine
Again my dear
I’m on this sea of tears
Sea of heartbreak
Oh, how did I lose you
Oh, where did I fail
Why did you leave me
Always to sail
Yeah, the sea of heartbreak
Lost love and loneliness
Memories of your caress so divine
How I wish you were mine
Again my dear
I’m on this sea of tears
Sea of heartbreak
Oh, what I’d give just to sail back to shore
Back to your arms once more
Oh, come to my rescue
Come here to me
Take me and keep me
Away from the sea
Yeah, the sea of heartbreak
Lost love and loneliness
Memories of your caress so divine
How I wish you were mine
Again my dear
I’m on this sea of tears
Sea of heartbreak
(Sea of heartbreak)
Yeah, sea of heartbreak
(Sea of heartbreak)
Heartbreak
(hello, hello)…
