WORDS

ON THE WATER

Chains on the pavement, dragging through my dreams at night.

Disregard this statement. Small words lead to the big fight.

Your smoky eyes watching kids play on the stairs.

The ceiling cracks as I pull the drapes again.

 

I’ll cross the bridge at midnight.   

I’ll watch the river roll under me.

Lights are dancing on the water.

That is where I want to be.

That is where I want to be.

 

Horns in the nightclub. They play the funeral at dawn.

They play on the church steps. Like barkers when the crowd’s gone.

The wine will pour, as you’re pacing to and fro.

The summer stays, waiting for the winds to blow.

 

I’ll cross the bridge at midnight.

I’ll watch the river roll under me.

Lights are dancing on the water.

That is where I want to be.

That is where I want to be.

 

The bar maid and I are deep in cups.

Starved for attention she fills me up.

Speaking my language, I get the hint.   

Some other time, some other sin.

 

I’ll cross the bridge at midnight. 

I’ll watch the river roll under me.

Lights dancing on the water.

That is where I want to be.

That is where I want to be.

That is where I want to be.

That is where I want to be.
