Every night I watch you burn,
Over a moonlight harbour, I watch those colours churn.
Every night I watch you shine,
Over the cool, black water, deep into my time and make me remember.
Loosen the locks and clamber free,
Run over the dew-soaked garden and slip between the trees, Over the
houses hangs a steam, And away on the ghoulish water, the light is
One of these nights I know I'll crack, drawn to that eerie glitter,
Into the past I'll beat my track, back to the light, oh make me
Everything sleeps, I disappear,
In a Maroon Mondeo, I wind down to the pier, Throw off my keys, my
watch and shirt, Scatter my shoes and wallet, these memories they hurt
but I can't remember.
Rubbing the goose fat on my skin,
I'm wading into the river-mouth right at the grin, Beating my soul
against the tide, It's only the fools that make it across to the other
