(Robert Forester)
If the cliffs were any closer
If the water wasn't so bad
I'd dive for your memory
On the rocks and the sand
I'd dive for you
Like a bird I'd descend
Deep down I'm lonely
And I miss my friend
So when I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your money
We stood that chance
We stood side by side
Strong and true
Just wish you'd remember
Bad times don't get you through
So when I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
We stood that chance
Now I dive black waters
The waters of her dream
Are black and forgetful
I'd like to make them clean
So when I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
We stood that chance
So when I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
We stood that chance
