HANDS ACROSS THE SEA
Fred Jay / Irving Reid / Ira Kosloff

If I could reach out
With my hands across the sea
I’d take you in my arms
And never set you free
How I’d hold you and hold you
Forever more in my heart

My love would be there
With my hands across the sea
To tell you what I feel
And what you mean to me
I’d then hold you and hold you
And never more would we part

But you’re much too far
For my hands to reach out
For my heart to remind you of me
Too long is the distance between us
Too wide and too deep is the sea

Now, I can’t reach out
With my hands across the sea
But there’s one thing I can do
I can hope, I can pray
I can wait for you
