about

Some fifteen miles north of Stockholm, there are some grey, barren rocks by the coast of the Baltic sea. Local history has it that the wives of the sailors and fishermen used to stand there looking for their men, hoping that they would return unscathed. Sometimes they did and sometimes they didn't. In a crack in the cliffs there grows a wild rose bush; according to the legend, it was planted by a widow in the 19th century.

lyrics

Gray waves carve the shore
November skies are chasing
Pine trees bending low
Cling their feet in the buckthorn weeds

Seagulls crying out
The wind against our faces
Eyes fixed far away
Silently standing still as stone

Waiting for the fisherman
For the sailor boy
For the long lost son
For my lover’s arms
To return

(For the long lost son, for my lover’s arms)

Gray waves carve the shore
Like they’ve done for ages
Rosebush braves the sea
Planted by loving hands long gone

Waiting for the fisherman
For the soldier boy
For the long lost son
For my lover’s arms
To return

(For the long lost son, for my lover’s arms)
