My name is calypso and i have lived alone
I live on an island and i waken to the dawn
A long time ago i watched him struggle with the sea
I knew that he was drowning and i brought him into me
Now today come morning light, he sails away
After one last night i let him go

My name is calypso, my garden overflows
Thick and wild and hidden is the sweetness there that grows
My hair blows long as i sing into the wind
I tell of nights where i could taste the salt on his skin
Salt of the waves and of tears and while he pulled away
I kept him here for years now i let him go

My name is calypso, i have let him go
In the dawn he sails away to be gone forever more
And the waves will take him in again but he'll know their ways now
I will stand upon the shore with a clean heart
And my song in the wind, the sand may sting my feet and the sky will burn
It's a lonely time ahead, i do not ask him to return
I let him go, i let him go
