With James Cook at sea for the past three years, Elizabeth arrives home from burying their youngest child, baby Elizabeth, who was just four years old.

lyrics

So Long Gone
(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon)

ELIZABETH
IN TIMES LIKE THESE
I WANT YOU BY MY SIDE
TO SHARE OUR FATES
AND WITHSTAND THE TIDES
ELIZABETH
WE PLEDGED OUR LOVE
TO ENDURE THE YEARS
WE LOOKED TO LIFE’S FORTUNE
WITH HOPE AND NO FEARS

SO LONG GONE
WHERE CAN YOU BE?
SO LONG GONE
AT SEA – AT SEA
I SEARCH IN THE STARS
FOR THE ONE WE MADE OURS
SO LONG GONE
SHOULDN’T YOU BE HERE WITH ME?

I KNOW MY ROLE
AS A DISCOVERER’S WIFE
BUT I LONG FOR
A LESS LONELY LIFE

SOME DAYS I’M STRONG
AND I BEAR THE PAIN
WE MADE OUR VOWS
JAMES, YOU’RE NOT TO BLAME

SO LONG GONE
WHERE CAN YOU BE?
SO LONG GONE
AT SEA – AT SEA
I SEARCH IN THE STARS
FOR THE ONE WE MADE OURS
SO LONG GONE
SHOULDN’T YOU BE HERE WITH ME?

DON’T YOU KNOW . . .
I LOVE YOU
I NEED YOU
I MISS YOU

SO LONG GONE
WHERE CAN YOU BE?
SO LONG GONE
AT SEA – AT SEA

I SEARCH IN THE STARS
FOR THE ONE WE MADE OURS
SO LONG GONE
WHY AREN’T YOU HERE WITH ME?
