Oath

Sea!
A steam ship took her away
that night I swore ...
 
Voice: I come back, wait, do not forget (of me)
 
Sea!
Every night I see you
I hear the echo of the words:
 
Voice: I come back, wait, do not forget (of me)
 
But the months pass, what am I waiting to do?
 
How can you forget
that I loved you ?!
How can you go wrong
for a lifetime ?!
And if you do not want to think
the oaths you did to me,
how can you forget
that I loved you,
if I have lost my life for you ?!
Sea!
In your most ardent letters
you repeat the oaths to me:
 
Voice: I come back, wait, do not forget
 
Sea!
If you know it's not true
take her out of my mind
Voice: I return, wait, do not forget
 
Teach me the way to get her back ...
 
How can you forget
that I loved you
 
Sea!
A steamer took her away ....
 
Thanks!

A discovery song thanks to a fantastic Belgian television series, 'Professor T',
which among its merits has that of a vintage Italian soundtrack.
This piece is the favorite of the protagonist - evidently also the director loves it - and occurs in several episodes of the show.
