Garrison

Garrison (various spellings) (from the French garnison, itself from the verb garnir, "to equip") is the collective term for a body of troops stationed in a particular location, originally to guard it, but now often simply using it as a home base. The garrison is usually in a city, town, fort, castle or similar. "Garrison town" is a common expression for any town that has a military base nearby. more »

On the border between the land and sea
Two worlds colliding in a magic mystery
Forbidden lovers meant to belong as one
A mythical woman and normal fisherman
The waves are crashing and winds cores the shore
Over the seaboard village of old Ballintore
You sat there waiting on the harbour rock
Every morning when I left my home for work

Now you're just a picture living in my mind
A distant memory I can't change back
Your smile is engraved into my eyes
I'll pray for your return just one last time
I'll tell you the tale - the merman and his maid
Who lost each other through the violent winter storm

Heart of the ocean and the soul of the sea
You swam away from me after I set you free
Sat on the harbour, I stare on at the spot
Where we watched the sunset until darkness came
They grew suspicious, I couldn't have you harmed
But moving on without you seems to be so hard
I'll wait here for you as long as it will take
Cause you're the only one who made my old heart break

Now you're just a picture living in my mind
A distant memory I can't change back
Your smile is engraved into my eyes
I'll pray for your return just one last time
I'll tell you the tale - the merman and his maid
Who lost each other through the violent winter storm

Only without me, you're still the same
Only without me, you haven't changed
Only without me, you're moving on
I guess I held you tight but now you're free
