East of the Sun and West of the Moon


[Song Lyric]

East of the sun and west of the moon
Is where I must go,
For the love I won and lost so soon
Is there I know.

East of the sun and west of the moon,
Where there’s a will there’s a way.
I’ll know no rest from this lonely quest
Till I’m with my love someday.

Though now winds of pain blow
In fierce storms of sorrow,
Somehow there’ll be a rainbow
Shining for me tomorrow.

East of the sun and west of the moon—
How I long to see
That strange and wondrous land
Where my love waits for me!

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
