Beyond The Reef - by Jack Pitman

Beyond the reef
Where the sea is dark and cold
My love has gone
And our dreams grow old

There'll be no tears
There'll be no regretting
Will he remember me
Will he forget?

I'll send a thousand flowers
Where the tradewinds blow
I'll send my lonely heart
For I love him so

Someday I know
He'll come back again to me
'Til then my heart will be
Beyond the reef
