I’m standing on the dockside
Where the Russian ship was parked
Where we were talking ‘bout forever
And dancing slowly apart

Can you hear me in the wires
Crossing over the borders
Running through wild blue yonder
Under the dark water

Chain smoking on the dockside
Staring hard into the bay
Where you threw your ring into the water
And slowly walked away

Can you hear me in the wires
Crossing over the borders
Running through wild blue yonder
Under the dark water

I drank too much Irish whisky and it’s making me sick
I got nothing to lose and I’m too drunk to quit
I had one little light and you were it…
Remember how we laughed in the rain

So I’m leaving the dockside
Where we watched the lovers waltz
Gonna find some dirty tavern
With a phone on the wall

Can you hear me in the wires
Crossing over the borders
Running through wild blue yonder
Under the dark water
