The Old Maiden

A ship lost at sea, through pride or arrogance. The lament of leaving family behind. I often wonder if this was the other side of young Nancy's story.

The air has frozen time, in laces of white
and by the old mans boat, a sheet of crystal ice

I had no patience dear, I could not wait
now in the sea so blue is, another angels face

The mountains have no grace, the rocks and caves
are battered, beaten, bruised, while the ocean plays

I had no patience dear, I could not wait
now in the sea so blue is, another angels face

I'd no time left for waiting, when the world is passing by
there's no place for the old maiden, on the winters tide

I had no patience dear, I could not wait
now in the sea so blue is, another angels face
