On Another Shore Lyrics

Artist: The Legendary Pink Dots
Album: 9 Lives To Wonder

All these years I waited
'Cause I knew that you'd return.
No stranger's hand has touched this temple.
One candle slowly burned...
For you.

(Were you waiting too?)

For you...just for you.

I swear I heard you crying
On the cruel uncanny breeze.
I saw you crawling down there
On your bleeding hands and knees.

Now crawl right up to me,
My captain.
The good ship sails away forever..
Leave us be.
The good ship sails away forever.
The way it's meant to be.

The good ship sails away forever..
Leave us be.
The good ship sails away forever.
The way it's meant to be.

These were the gentle words she said,
I could not find her in my head.
I searched for little clues
But all the lights were glowing red.

And in the end I smiled politely,
Snatched my coat and fled.

From you.

Just from you.
Just from you.

But still I hear her crying
On the cruel uncanny breeze.
I see her crawling down there
On her bleeding hands and knees.

Come to me!

Come to me!

The good ship sails away forever.
Was never meant to be.

The good ship sails away forever.
Never meant to be.

Never meant to be...
