Standing on the edge of the quay
No light flashes on the water for me
Fog in my mind darkness in my eyes
Silently screaming for a distant sound

Ripple river yellows
Rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
Stillness overcomes me in the night
Listen to the rising water moan

I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat (2x)

Shadows all through me shudder away
Echo me echo me
Am I alone or is the river alive cause it
Echoes me echoes me echoes me

I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat
Waiting, waiting for the night boat

I'm waiting...
I'm waiting for the night boat
Waiting for the night boat! (2X)
I'm waiting...
I'm waiting for the night boat
For the night boat!!!
