I saw the shoals at night, with the moon above
I felt an obligation, and heard your voice again
If you were here once, you were here a hundred times
If I reached out tonight, I found I couldn't fight it
If you were here once, you were here a hundred times

Ohh
Best as a wishing star, I saw you better far away
And I felt obligation, and heard your voice again
Hear the rush of water, passing over the shoals
Hear my heartbeat rather, if I reached out tonight

If I reach out tonight and find I can't fight it
And look to the stars, and wander towards a
Heartfelt obligation, a place that you called home
And heard your voice again, but it's too late
You left long ago, and now you're probably dead and gone
And I'm left here with the water and the shoals and a tainted obligation
Ohh
