Odessa (City on the Black Sea)

Lyrics:

Fourteenth of February, eighteen ninety nine
The British ship Veronica was lost without a sign
Baa baa black sheep, you haven’t any wool
Captain Richardson left himself a lonely wife in Hull

Cherub, I lost a ship in the Baltic sea
I’m on an iceberg running free
Sitting, filing this berg to the shape of a ship;
Sailing my way back to your lips
One passing ship gave word that you have moved out of your old flat
You love the Vicar more then words can say
Tell him to pray that I won’t melt away
And I’ll see your face again

Odessa, How strong am I?
Odessa, How time goes by

Treasure, you know the neighbors that live next door
They haven’t got their dog anymore
Freezing, sailing around in the North Atlantic
Can’t seem to leave the sea anymore
I just can’t understand why you just moved to Finland
You love that Vicar more then words can say
Ask him to pray that I won’t melt away
And I’ll see your face again

Fourteenth of February , eighteen ninety nine
The British ship Veronica was lost without a sign
