"And The Ship Sails On" as written by and Duffy Pka The Lilac Time....
One from the heart could be
The East Village eye should be
Fluorescent lights above the kiss goodnight
And love will always stay
Beyond words

The first breath of spring must be
The last days of school might be
The first taste of forbidden fruit
And dancing with a girl who can afford good suits
Your lips on my neck
Sunbathing on the deck
Of the love boat
In clover we float
A happiness that makes you choke
Beyond words

The words of love and of disgust
Are lost in the wind like so much dust
The talks break down
Two lovers kiss
What words in the world
Are we going to miss?

And the ship sails on
And when our lives have gone
What epitaph will mean a thing?
What're you going to say when the phone don't ring?
Was your life quite good?
And were your book shelves made out of wood?
To hold the books they write when their heroes die
And the loss they always find
Beyond words
And the ship sails on
Beyond words...
