lyrics

Staring out my window past the waves / Haven’t seen a ship pass for days
Tears stain the wood on my veranda / Tracing time since Marco sailed for China / I’m alone in this tower / I call his desperate name upon the hour / I sing Marco, Polo / Your circumnavigation leaves me solo / I sing Marco, Polo / Your circumnavigation leaves me so low, leaves me solo / Staring out my window past the waves / Haven’t seen a ship cross for days / Soothsayers and matrons at my door / My appetite for pretense no more
