"South Ferry Road" as written by Rick Chertoff, Robert Andrew Hyman and Eric M. Bazilian....
The night we stole the moon, a pirate's paradise
The light along the ocean was in your eyes
It ended all too soon, it started suddenly
The bridge was almost open when we arrived

And when I thought I was lost you carried me across
Laughing through the fallout zone
You touched me in a way I'd never known
And in the salt-scented air I followed you there
You taught me everything I know
I'm going down again...
South Ferry Road

We found a place to land, a space-age hideaway
Safe inside the shelter, just you and I
The night we stole the moon you gave it back to me
The light along the ocean was out goodbye

But even still, now and then, I remember you when
Laughing all the way back home
You touched me in a way I've never known
And all the others remain just faces in a game
Remind me of a place I know
I'm going down again...
South Ferry Road

    General CommentThis is a VERY good song. In my opinion, it's the most underrated Hooters song.

    General CommentOh, and it's obviously about a nostalgic man who's "going down" South Ferry Road, which conjures up many romantic images of a girl he once knew and loved.

    General CommentI've just "re-discovered" this song after hearing it 20+ years ago. I'm big into lyrics and their meaning, so I was trying to figure this one out. If I had to guess, it sounds like an apocolyptic moment (nuclear war?) happened the night he was with his woman. Then, after surviving the "fallout" for a year she died...or something.

    I could be wrong...heck if I know.
