When I Saw You There
Rest Your Weary Head (2003)

When I saw you there in the market square
Had to know your face and name
Where do you come from?
What year were you born?
Does it matter all the same

Can I walk with you past the shop windows?
Have you ever seen this town?
With your raven hair
Your complexion fair
How I loved you when you were around

Said you'd sailed for weeks on the ocean wide
Said you arrived yesterday
Left your home so dear
O how I longed to hear
Of those places far away

Now the rain fell down the day you left
How I cursed up at the sky
Your ticket in hand
For another land
So I watched your ship sail by
