The Green Pajamas

Dark Water (In The Wires)

Iím standing on the dockside Where the Russian ship was parked Where we were talking Ďbout forever And dancing slowly apart Can you hear me in the wires Crossing over the borders Running through wild blue yonder Under the dark water Chain smoking on the dockside Staring hard into the bay Where you threw your ring into the water And slowly walked away Can you hear me in the wires Crossing over the borders Running through wild blue yonder Under the dark water I drank too much Irish whisky and itís making me sick I got nothing to lose and Iím too drunk to quit I had one little light and you were itÖ Remember how we laughed in the rain So Iím leaving the dockside Where we watched the lovers waltz Gonna find some dirty tavern With a phone on the wall Can you hear me in the wires Crossing over the borders Running through wild blue yonder Under the dark water _____________________ by Jeff Kelly (c) 2011 St. Brigid Publishing BMI
