    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 it blows long
    As I sing into the wind
    My name is Calypso
    And I have lived alone
    I live on an island
    I tell of nights
    Where I could taste the salt on his skin

    Salt of the waves
    And of tears
    And though he,pulled away
    I kept him here for years
    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 will 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
