Gerry Rafferty – The Waters Of Forgetfulness lyrics

Born on the wind, cooled by the rain
Lost in a dream, no memory remains
Under the clouds, far from the sun
Tied to a wheel, since time has begun.

And we sleep the live long night
As part of the river we suffer together so far from the light
And we gaze the live long day
Into the waters of forgetfulness, yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah.

Tossed on the sea, still in a dream
Looks like a war, it's not what it seems
Ruled by the moon, pulled by the tide
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

And we sleep the live long night
As part of the river we suffer together so far from the light
And we gaze the live long day
Into the waters of forgetfulness, yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah.

And we sleep the live long night
As part of the river we suffer together so far from the light
And we gaze the live long day
Into the waters of forgetfulness, yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah.
