Thanks for the links, whatever one's feelings, those two 'losers' pulled at the heartstrings as they plodded round the fields finding ring pulls. It was almost Shakespearan the programme.

Here are all the lyrics – :-)


Will you search through the lonely earth for me,
Climb through the briar and bramble.
I'll be your treasure.

I felt the touch of the kings and the breath of the wind,
I knew the call of all the song birds.
They sang all the wrong words.
I'm waiting for you,
I'm waiting for you.

(Mmmmmm)

Will you swim through the briny sea for me,
Roll along the ocean's floor.
I'll be your treasure.

I'm with the ghosts of the men who can never sing again,
There's a place follow me.
Where a love lost at sea.
Is waiting for you.
Is waiting for you.
