Elton John - "Crazy Water Elton John Bernie Taupin" 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
