"Midnight on the Water" as written by and Ian Matthews....
It started out Sunday afternoon
And I never thought anyone cared
I saw her by the log pile singing a song
She didn't know anyone heard

Run around pleasing all the time
But she never sang to me
And everything's wrong but that's alright
I can hear by the call of the sea

It was ringing in my ears when I left the town
But I know it can't last for long
There's movement down by the edge of the sand
I can hear her singing song

It was midnight now with the moon on the water
I could see her hand in my way
But I swear by God it wasn't my hand
That took a young life away

Well it's too late now but I can't lie
There's another man here with an alibi
And I swear by God it wasn't my hand
That took a young life away
At midnight on the water
At midnight on the water
