SIMPLE SONG

SIMPLE 

It's raining -  it's Sunday & I feel a little blue

It's been a while since I've spent time with you 

The coach takes too long

The train's here and gone

and time just drifts away - Just drift's away

 

I went to the doctor - feeling sick

He asked me how my life is? -

 (He don't miss a trick)

I said it's gone wrong, he said:

"Just write a simple song''

The pain will drift away - Just drift away

The last time I called you - you said goodbye

Strangest of feelings - I don't know why

To minimise fuss, you went off on the bus  

And the pain just drifted away

Drifted away, drifted away

 

 

 

SHIP

There's a ship in the harbour

the words on her bow - 'Romance'

When the wind fills her sails 

The waves start to dance

Haul up the anchor

head for the straights

Let's go Home

 

Away boys, Away, Let's go home

With the waves crashing down

All around - endless sky

Were hoping for land

and to hear seagulls cry

Taste the salt on our lips

While the sun blinds our eyes 

Away boys, Away - Let's go home

Away boys, Away - Let's go home

Let's go home

It's been so long since  we sailed

to find the Americas

I left my Mary alone

On the quayside crying 

 

Away boys, Away - Let's go home

Away boys, Away - Let's go home

Let's go home

There's a ship in the harbour

the words on her bow - 'Romance'
