the first line is "her name was isabella and she lived by the ocean," and the refrain went:

don't cry any longer
don't shed another tear
don't cry any longer
you have me now
and i will always be here.

except for that over the course of the song, isabella dies tragically and her love, abandoned to despair, is left walking the shore near their home and hearing her voice in the wind off the sea (where she drowned.) you are never, of course, sure if this is supposed to be somehow comforting, this poor guy who keeps hearing his dead wife near the rocks where she died, or some sort of ironic commentary on his complete inability to move on for her loss.

though since i was fifteen at the time, and horribly romantic at that, it was probably the former.

it's horribly earwormy. if you'd like it stuck in your head sometime, i'd be happy to oblige. dave berry claims the only sure way to kill an earworm is to pass it along to somebody else. ;-)
