Ghosts on water give
To a gentle touch
Look back in silence
I can never see far
City as a memory and a
A squeak in the shoe
All the semaphore echoes
That get (???)
Chorus:
Oh-oh, remember
Oh-oh, remember
Oh-oh, remember
Oh-oh, remember
And I can see another time
Another place, some setting sun
And I can wait forever
Walking with someone inside my arm
Twins in the strata
We travel by 'phone
And the fog is a vehicle
The fuel's in the boat
Ghosts on water's drifting
On a summer light
They can pass like sand through a hand
As they leave the world behind
(Chorus)
Ghosts on water
Ghosts on water
Ghosts on water
Ghosts on water
Ghosts on water
