It's six o'clock now in the morning
As I wait for my train to come
To take me somewhere just outside of Boston
As I run to find the other sun

I'm leaving more behind than I care to talk about
Just more pain than this heart and hands can use
As this big world's always spinning
All that I thought I was winning
I never thought I'd lose

This great force it takes me to the ferry
To cross wind and water so untame
I'm on that ship my life just seems so very small
In comparison to everything around

But there's a girl over there, she's got mahogany hair
And her eyes of sweet amethyst
I bow as she curtsies
It doesn't look like she's going to hurt me
So I decide to add her to my list
And she said

Stay on the Vineyard for the summer
Stay on the Vineyard for the year
We'll find a little youse down there in Oak Bluffs
And our children is all that we'll hear

It seems now that I should be going
As that one day turned into five or six
Although I'm loving all the beautiful things she's
Showing, I back up and I'm enveloped by the mist

I think that maybe it would be better
If I just wrote her a letter
But instead she grabs me and we kiss
