Song Lyrics

You`re the Queen of the slipstream

With eyes that shine

You have crossed many waters to be here

You have drank of the fountain of innocence

And experienced the long cold wintry years.

There`s a dream where the contents are visible

Where the poetic champions compose

Will you breathe not a word of this secrecy, and

Will you still be my special rose?


Goin` away far across the sea

But I`ll be back for you

Tell you everything I know

Baby everything is true

Will the blush still remain

On your cheeks my love

In the light always seen

In your head?

Gold and sliver they placed

At your feet my dear

But I know you chose me


Goin` away... etc.

You`re the Queen of the slipstream

I love you so

You have crossed many waters to be here

And you drink at the fountains of innocence

And experienced, you know very well
