I Live Not Where I Love

Come all ye maids who live at a distance
Many a mile from off your love
Come and assist me this very moment
For to pass away some time
Singing sweetly and completely
Songs of pleasure and of love
My heart is with you all together
Though I live not where I love

When I sleep I dream about you
When I wake I find no rest
Every moment thinking of you
My heart fixed within your breast
Though great distance may prove assistance
From my mind your love to remove
My heart is with you all together
Though I live not where I love

All the world should be one religion
All living things should cease to die
If ever I prove false to my jewel
Any way my love deny
The world would change and be most strange
If ever I inconstant prove
My heart is with you all together
Though I live not where I love

So farewell lads and farewell lasses
Now I think I've got my choice
I'll away to yonder island
Where I think I hear your voice
If you call then I will follow
Though the ocean be so wide
My heart is with you all together
Thought I live not where I love
