Elton John - "Crazy Water" lyrics

On a bench, on the beach Just before the sun had gone I tried to reach you Plain faced and falling fast You looked so vacant like an empty shell Whose life had passed upon the ocean

Before light shook the sky Down by the docks I saw The masts unfolding Don't turn away, please understand It's a life and a living And a way to keep the wolves away From hungry hands, from hungry hands

Crazy water Takes my fishing boat on Monday morning Dangerous dreaming If we all believe in the things you believe you're seeing Oh we'd never drop our nets in the crazy water, crazy water

Tangled lives, lonely wives Shoreline widows pray For the souls of missing whalers Endless nights on an endless sea Where nothing lives between us Just the breakers on the ocean Separating you and me Separating you and me
