Lyrics
The moonlight is shining down
Through the factories on the shipyard waters
And in a winter midnight Sideways moon sets
On the memory of what's gone missing

The sidewalk stares up silent
I'm just a shadow slowly disappearing
A ghost of something real that used to exist
A memory of what's gone missing

Why do you keep running?
The pace is hurried but you're never closer
To what it was you thought you wanted
It all keeps changing, now something else is missing
Who knows where?

I knew our time was running out
So by the kitchen window back at your house
I ended up wasted on whiskey straight
And filled the ashtray up with your secrets

You were an anchor with high cheekbones
I was a soldier with broken fingers
You ended up wasted on cheap champagne
Celebrating everything that's missing

Why do you keep running
The pace is hurried but you're never closer
To what it was you thought you wanted
It all keeps changing and now something else is missing

Familiar madness
It all keeps changing and now something else is missing
Hey, yeah
