Lucy Spraggan – Rockcliffe Bay lyrics
He said part of me has been lost at sea, never to return again
With her eyes wide open, she was softly spoken
She said: "babe, are you missing the breeze again?"
You look so fine, sailor, your shoes still shine
After years of a house that don't sway
But she could see in his eyes that ship's flag still flies
And his home was an ocean away

He sang, freedom was mine, for one last time
When I was sailing along those waves
But now my plate don't slide
And my rum's now wine
And I will never be the same

I don't hear birds no more
But there's swallows on my hands
I earnt a star that wasn't plucked from above
I have memories of friends
Who left this earth as young men
Yet my hairs as white as my hat once was

He sang, freedom was mine, for one last time
When I was sailing along those waves
But now my plate don't slide
And my rum's now wine
And I will never be the same

I hear a blast in the background
Feel the wind whip my face
Towing a sister ship
That didn't make it home
Colours, fade away from me as
I awake, my wife said
"I'm sleeping next to my own"

He sang, freedom was mine, for one last time
When I was sailing along those waves
But now my plate don't slide
And my rum's now wine
And I will never be the same
