Longest Waves are the Deepest

I typed up the words and music to a song I wrote a month or so ago today. Here are the lyrics. I've got about 100 or so lyrics that need the music typing... it's a job that will need doing for many years, I suspect! This is a bouncy song called The Longest Waves are the Deepest.

The lights were low at the inn
and so was I that night.
My girl and I weren't getting far
I was unsure of where we were.
I met a sailor, he said to me.

The longest waves are the deepest.
The shallow waves don't last long.
The longest waves are the deepest.
Let it grow.
Let it grow.

The man was grey as the sky
he has the sea inside.
I told him of my troubled heart,
of all the doubts I tried to hide.
His eyes were smiling before he said.

The longest waves are the deepest.
The shallow waves don't last long.
The longest waves are the deepest.
Let it grow.
Let it grow.

Now forty years have gone by
since I was there that night.
My girl is sitting by my side
although her hair has all turned white
just like the sailor, who said to me.

The longest waves are the deepest.
The shallow waves don't last long.
The longest waves are the deepest.
Now I know.
Now I know.
