  • Boy when out on a boat tonight
    Waiting on his lover
    Seen his mermaid bride in the moonlight
    And the arms of another
    She said "standing on the water is easier to do
    Then to try and be a family living here with you
    And the more I've been thinking
    The more I know I'm living alone

    Now they see him out on the waterways
    Rolling on the foam
    Only memory for a future
    Only ocean for a home
    'Cause Amelia's the name that she calls herself these days
    And "birds! birds!" is all we heard before she flew away
    And the more I've been thinking
    The more I know I'm living alone
