Iíll take you with me over the water
over the water when I go
Iíll take you with me over the water
over the water where the wild winds blow

we slid in silence through the dockyard
rusted cranes against the sky
oil-fed rainbow on the water
harbour walls so black and high

in the bar we told our stories
played our tunes on and on
till a wide-eyed girl stood up amongst us
held me silent with her song

we took the air and walked together
careless whispers, stupid games
harbour lights across the water
we went dancing in the rain

the spirit of a troubled life
is all I have to give to you
the simple curse of a wayward life
is all that I can bring to you

but Iíll take you with me over the water
over the water when I go
take you with me over the water
over the water where the wild winds blow

take you with me over the water
